Collecting Fuel Cell History

If you have made, sold, or used fuel cells, you can help the Smithsonian understand and collect the history of this important technology.

Below are four questions – please answer any or all of them. Our purpose is strictly to gather information. There are no "right" answers, and your responses may be as brief or detailed as you like. We intend to post selected, edited responses, and we have provided an option for these posts to remain anonymous.

About Fuel Cell
History and Technology

Tell us about yourself. How did you become interested in fuel cells, how have you been involved with them, and for how long?


In our technical and historical overviews, what devices, projects, people, and events have we missed? Where have we made errors? Where should we look for more extensive information? Be sure we have your name and e-mail address (above) in case we need additional details.


Do you have or know of artifacts, photographs, papers or recordings that would help document the history of fuel cells? Where are they located and whom should we contact about them? Is the material available for donation to the Smithsonian?

The Smithsonian does not appraise or authenticate materials. Due to limited storage space, we may decline materials that are offered.


Do you have any additional comments about fuel cells (or our website)? Thoughts and perspectives on the technology? Its problems and promises?
