Hydrogen has long been considered a promising alternative fuel, and fuel cells are the most efficient technology for turning hydrogen into electricity. But it has taken decades of development to get fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen fueling infrastructure ready for the road. Join presenters from California Fuel Cell Partnership, Proton OnSite and Toyota for a live webinar to learn about the potential and challenges of hydrogen fuel cell technology.

About the Presenters

Bill Elrick is the California Fuel Cell Partnership's (CaFCP ) technical program director for five years and in alternative fuel transportation for 20. Under his leadership, CaFCP members have developed new analysis tools and detailed roll-out plans that state and federal agencies reference in planning support for hydrogen stations. He works directly with industry stakeholders including automakers, station developers and government to facilitate collaborative actions that fulfill each organization's needs. Mr. Elrick also oversees CaFCP's work on regulations, codes and standards, fuel cell buses and station implementation. His team supports developing standards that ensure safe, reliable and economically viable alternative fuel products; educates emergency response personnel about alternative fuel vehicles; and works with the fuel reseller community that will install stations and sell fuel. He has a master's degree in urban and regional planning from Ball State University and an undergraduate degree from the University of Indiana.

Larry Moulthrop, VP H2 Systems at Proton OnSite, has over 30 years' experience in proton exchange membrane (PEM) based electrolysis systems, fuel cell systems, and hydrogen fueling. In 1996, he co-founded Proton Energy Systems (now d/b/a Proton OnSite) to commercialize PEM water electrolysis for hydrogen infrastructure. As of today, Proton has delivered more than 1,800 packaged hydrogen generator systems worldwide for industry, vehicle fueling, renewable energy capture, telecom backup power, military applications, and other hydrogen system solutions. Active in developing H2 fueling infrastructure, Mr. Moulthrop serves as the principal integrating system architect of the SunHydro™ hydrogen fueling stations, coordinates the Toyota Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle demonstration program underway at SunHydro LLC, and is a contributing committee member of NFPA 2, Hydrogen Technologies Code.
