Hydrogen Education Foundation announces 6 contestants for $1M H2 Refuel H-Prize

The Hydrogen Education Foundation announced the official list of contestants for the $1-million H2 Refuel H-Prize competition. (Earlier post.) The submissions of the six qualified contestants will now be evaluated by a group of expert judges to determine which contestants can advance to the finalist round.

In October 2014, the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO) and the Hydrogen Education Foundation (HEF) launched the $1-million H2 Refuel H-Prize. The two-year competition challenges America’s engineers and entrepreneurs to develop affordable systems for small-scale hydrogen fueling.

The H2 Refuel H-Prize has now accepted submissions from six contestants. The submissions will be evaluated based on a variety of criteria, found in the rules and guidelines. The contestants are:

  • Ion Power Inc.
  • Katsu Technologies Inc.
  • Millennium Reign Energy
  • Reactwell
  • Simple.Fuel.
  • Washington State University

The finalist selection is expected to be announced in December 2015 followed by system construction, installation, testing and evaluation, resulting in the announcement of the winner of the $1-million prize at the end of 2016.



Excellent ideal to promote lower cost H2 production and H2 refueling stations.

This program could be expanded.
