Through the FCHEA Yamaha will back multiple technology solutions.

Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA, announced it has become a member of the Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA), and will join hydrogen producers, infrastructure providers, engineering firms and others, as part of the company’s plan to pursue multiple technology solutions to reach its carbon neutrality goal.

FCHEA is a national industry association for H2 energy and fuel cell tech in the US.

Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association was created over 30 years ago and strives to provide a consistent industry voice to US regulators and policymakers, with a focus of driving support at state and federal levels. The goal of FCHEA is to lead national advocacy to encourage every level of government to support the research, development and deployment of hydrogen and fuel cell technology.

Additionally, the organization aims to provide the industry with a voice in shaping codes, regulations and standards to allow commercial growth of the technology, while making certain to maintain the highest levels of consumer safety and satisfaction. Currently, FCHEA represents over 100 leading organizations advancing the production, distribution and use of clean, safe and reliable hydrogen energy.

“We are very excited to welcome Yamaha to the association. Having an innovative company with a strong foundation in multiple mobility sectors focus on hydrogen is a tremendous asset for FCHEA and the hydrogen industry at large,” said Frank Wolak, FCHEA President and CEO, in a recent news release.

Yamaha is dedicated to advancing fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies.

“Yamaha plans to work diligently with FCHEA to advance hydrogen energy and fuel cell policies,” said Martin Peters, Director, Yamaha Marine External Affairs, who will serve on the FCHEA’s board of directors.
