The U.S. Department of Energy sponsored the Fuel Cells for Portable Power Workshop in Phoenix, Arizona, January 15-16, 2002. Attendees included researchers, government officials, and industry members. The purpose of the workshop was to establish performance targets, identify technical barriers, and propose R&D activities to address and resolve the barriers to the commercialization of portable power fuel cells. The proceedings of the Fuel Cells for Portable Power Workshop, which include the overview presentations and the recommendations of the three breakout groups, are available as Adobe Acrobat PDFs.
