Thank you for your interest in contributing to the The National Fuel Cell Research Center.
The National Fuel Cell Research Center (NFCRC) is one of the components of the Advanced Power and Energy Program at the University of California, Irvine. The mission of NFCRC is to promote and support the development and adoption of advanced clean combustion power and energy systems by providing technological leadership with a vigorous program of research and beta testing, coupled with education and market place technology transfer. A key defining characteristic of our efforts is taking our research an additional step beyond the laboratory to practical application and real world deployment; a practice we refer to as "Bridging." Industry is actively engaged and vital to our work as are key government agencies that combined, form our strategic alliances.
Research agreements with companies and federal and state agencies provide major funding support for the UC Irvine Combustion Lab. While these research agreements provide substantial support, they do not meet all of the program needs or allow the flexibility to conduct initial research in promising areas.
Donations from corporations and individual donors provide the critical support to fill gaps in funding, to ensure full support of our students, to conduct outreach and education, and for research in exciting new areas.
