What is The Fuel Cell Collaborative? 

The Fuel Cell Collaborative’s mission is to discover, develop and deploy the world’s leading fuel cell technologies from the heart of the Palmetto State.

The Fuel Cell Collaborative:

  • Discovers and recruits the next generation of innovators, talent, and researchers

  • Develops technologies and sustainable, thriving firms that will change the face of the fuel cell market

  • Deploys projects and businesses into the marketplace through supportive collaborations and lasting relationships with private sector, higher education, government and community leaders

The Fuel Cell Collaborative was formed by the University of South Carolina, the City of Columbia, EngenuitySC, Midlands Technical College, the Savannah River National Lab and SCRA to position Columbia, SC as a leader in hydrogen and fuel cell innovation and technology.

Each of our 6 member organizations brings a critical set of unique abilities to help foster the growth of new technologies and fuel cell firms. Together, our members create a welcoming environment for partners to thrive locally in Columbia, S.C. and in the global industry.
