The H2 Refuel H-Prize challenges America’s innovators to deploy an on-site hydrogen generation system, using electricity or natural gas, to fuel hydrogen vehicles, that can be used in homes, community centers, small businesses, or similar locations.

hprize_horizontaltimeline-20sep16The H2 Refuel system demonstration phase has started! On September 21, testing of the finalist system began, starting the collection of technical data and cost information. The data will be analyzed after the competition closes in the fall of 2016 to determine if the system meets the required criteria to win the $1 million prize. This fall, an “Open House” will give the public an opportunity to get a look at the system – sign up for the mailing list  to find out more details as they become available. HEF and DOE plan to announce the outcome of the $1 million competition in early 2017.

The finalist phase started in January 2016 with the announcement of the selected finalist, SimpleFuel.
