Research Staff

Because the fundamental science behind hydrogen and fuel cell technologies spans NREL's diverse renewable energy specialties, scientists and engineers from across the laboratory's research areas contribute to this work.

Research Areas and Technical Leads

NREL's hydrogen and fuel cell research and development is organized into eight research areas. Technical leaders work closely with Keith Wipke, laboratory program manager for NREL's Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Technologies Program, to guide related efforts.
