Mission
MISSION

The Mid-Atlantic Hydrogen Coalition (MAHC)

is an Initiative of the International Center for

Sustainable Development (ICSD).

This Initiative’s mission is to promote the

deployment of hydrogen-energy and fuel-

cell technologies in the Mid-Atlantic Region

(DE, DC, MD, NJ, PA, VA, WVA).


Strategy
STRATEGY

  • Facilitate cooperation of pertinent public and private-sector organizations in the Mid-Atlantic Region in developing a region-wide hydrogen-energy and fuel-cell infrastructure, and in undertaking region-wide activities in the areas of hydrogen codes and standards, project financing, training and information sharing;

  • Facilitate this in a manner that, especially from the perspective of private industry, will showcase the Region as the premier opportunity and best geographic area for the first full-scale commercialization of hydrogen-energy, fuel-cell vehicles, and stationary fuel-cell applications in the country;

  • Promote alternative fuels as a stepping stone to the hydrogen economy.


Objectives
Objectives

  • Advocate and publicize the strengths and experiences of the Mid-Atlantic Region in the hydrogen energy and fuel cell areas;

  • Assist State Energy Offices and other organizations in the Region in obtaining Federal, foundation, private-sector and other funding for hydrogen energy and fuel cell research, demonstration, development and commercialization projects;

  • Promote and coordinate hydrogen energy and fuel cell activities, codes and standards development, and information sharing in the Region;

  • Facilitate the development of a Mid-Atlantic Hydrogen Energy and Fuel Cell Corridor that includes alternative fuels delivery


Priority activities
Priority Activities

Objective 1:

  • Develop a MAHC web site and newsletter;

  • Develop a regional commercial characterization of all aspects and components of hydrogen production, transmission, distribution, storage and use;

  • Develop a regional commercial characterization of all aspects and components of fuel cell production and use;

  • Identify all research, development and demonstration activities in the Region in the hydrogen-energy and fuel cell area.

    Objective 2:

  • Develop a Regional Advocacy Program for funding hydrogen energy and fuel cell projects in the Mid-Atlantic Region;

  • Provide assistance to the State Energy Offices and other organizations in the Region in identifying and applying for Federal, foundation and private-sector funding for hydrogen-energy and fuel-cell-related activities.

Priority Activities(continued)

Objective 3:

  • Identify, implement and coordinate early-product and early-adoption opportunities for hydrogen energy and fuel cell technologies in the Region, including ICE and hythane systems;

  • Promote extensive regional information sharing and coordination of training and education programs on hydrogen energy and fuel cell issues, including system maintenance and repair;

  • Provide technical assistance for hydrogen energy and fuel cell technology deployment, feasibility study implementation, and codes and standards development;

  • Identify potential regional applications of fuel cells as cost-effective distributed energy resources.

Priority Activities(continued)

Objective 4:

  • Develop a Vision of what a Hydrogen Energy and Fuel Cell Corridor in the Mid-Atlantic Region should look like;

  • Develop an Implementation Strategy for this Vision;

  • Facilitate public/private sector partnerships to implement this Strategy and set the stage for extensive hydrogen energy and fuel cell commercialization in the Corridor;

  • Quantify and monitor the environmental and economic benefits of the Mid-Atlantic Hydrogen Energy and Fuel Cell Corridor;

  • Identify potential economies of scale in areas involving hydrogen supply, fuel cell servicing and maintenance, and other related commercial activities.
