National Research Council Canada
The National Research Council of Canada is Canada’s premier applied research organization dedicated to supporting Canada’s fuel cell and hydrogen industry, and works closely with Canadian universities, government agencies and companies on projects focused on the research, development, demonstration and testing of hydrogen and fuel cell systems. With recognized expertise in Advanced Materials and Processing, Modeling and Numerical Simulation, Novel Architecture Design, Unit and Integrated System Testing, and Sensors and Diagnostics Development, NRC’s knowledge is applied to three strategic areas of critical importance to Canada’s fuel cell industry including Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC) and Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) as well as Hydrogen and Alternative Fuels. NRC maintains testing and evaluation facilities including nine hydrogen-ready labs, a membrane electrode assembly facility, a Hydrogen Environmental Chamber (HEC) and an industrial incubator for early stage companies. NRC also has the facilities and capabilities to host integrated technology demonstration projects, with a primary objective to address technical and non-technical barriers to deployment of fuel cell, hydrogen and clean energy technologies.
