    21. 21. Fuel Cell Collaborative The Fuel Cell Collaborative was formed by the University of South Carolina, the City of Columbia, EngenuitySC, Midlands Technical College and SCRA to position Columbia, SC as a leader in hydrogen and fuel cell innovation and technology. Each of our 5 member organizations brings a critical set of unique abilities to help foster the growth of new technologies and fuel cell firms. Together, our members create a welcoming environment for partners to thrive locally in Columbia, S.C. and in the global industry. The Fuel Cell Collaborative’s mission is to discover, develop and deploy the world’s leading fuel cell technologies from the heart of the Palmetto State. The Fuel Cell Collaborative: Discovers and recruits the next generation of innovators, talent, and researchers Develops technologies and sustainable, thriving firms that will change the face of the fuel cell market Deploys projects and businesses into the marketplace through supportive collaborations and lasting relationships with private sector, higher education, government and community leaders
    22. 22. Fuel Cell Collaborative With one of the state’s two hydrogen fueling stations, the City of Columbia is a prime metropolitan area for launching pilot programs with hydrogen and fuel cell vehicles or backup power, and showcasing public demonstrations like existing units at the University of South Carolina and the U.S. Army’s Fort Jackson. The Fuel Cell Collaborative has access to some of the world’s leading innovators and researchers in Columbia, S.C. Working with its partners, the Fuel Cell Collaborative creates collaborations and relationships that bring the tools and resources necessary to maintain our status as a world-class fuel cell community.
