Abstract : The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) sponsored an assessment of how fuel cells can help meet DoD's power needs in the near term, i.e., the next 5 years. The assessment is intended to assist DoD in establishing priorities and taking actions that reflect the potential energy, environmental, and economic benefits of fuel cells; the current fuel cell readiness to support DoD missions; and DoD's role as an early adopter of technology. The value proposition of four applications was analyzed, and recommendations for DoD action were developed. This report provides an overview of the assessment.
