The upcoming Outreach Meeting in Linz during the 57th ExCo Meeting takes place on November 6th. The title of the Outreach Meeting is "Market Readiness of Fuel Cells":

The fuel cell sector is continually expanding. Many cities are installing fuel cells as auxiliary power sources for essential services, major corporations have also been installing fuel cell systems powering retail sites, data centers and other facilities. Railroad and telecom companies use fuel cells to power communication towers and signaling infrastructure. Fuel cell - powered forklifts, deployed in warehouses and distribution centers, became common around the globe and fuel cell electric vehicles have become available for purchase or lease and fuel cell buses are in operation in several countries. Despite all of these developments, the potential of fuel cells is far from having been reached and much work remains to be done.

The Technology Collaboration Programme on the Research, Development and Demonstration on Advanced Fuel Cells (Advanced Fuel Cells Technology Collaboration Programme, AFC TCP) functions within a framework created by the International Energy Agency (IEA). The activities of the AFC TCP are coordinated by the IEA’s Working Party on Energy End-use Technologies (EUWP). Views, findings and publications of the AFC TCP do not necessarily represent the views or policies of the IEA Secretariat or of its individual member countries.
