Hydrogen Vehicle Testing Facility
Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.
As we became more involved with evaluating hydrogen fueled vehicles, EPA upgraded one laboratory test cell and built another to accommodate hydrogen fuel at our Ann Arbor, Michigan laboratory. The design of these test cells used an innovative approach that involves fueling vehicles from outside the cell in order to cost effectively address safety issues. These test cells continue to be available for hydrogen vehicle testing for technical evaluation or vehicle certification.
The experience of testing hydrogen vehicles provided the opportunity for EPA to become a leader in the development of robust test procedures for hydrogen vehicles. Our facilities have also been the site of testing for vehicles operating participating in the Department of Energy, "National Hydrogen Learning Demonstration" program.
