The meeting is an offering of the New Jersey Hydrogen Learning Center, administered by the Center for Energy, Economic and Environmental Policy (CEEEP) at Rutgers University. The New Jersey Hydrogen Learning Center is the first organization of its kind in the state. Its stakeholder network is made up of businesses, non-profit organizations and academic institutions across New Jersey involved in the burgeoning hydrogen economy.
The Learning Center grew out of the recommendations of a July 2004 CEEEP report, New Jersey: Opportunities and Options in the Hydrogen Economy. The purpose of the New Jersey Hydrogen Learning Center is to promote discussion and education about what role hydrogen should play as part of New Jersey’s energy portfolio,” said CEEEP Director Scott Weiner. It brings issues that stakeholders in the hydrogen economy face to the forefront, with the goal of informing New Jersey energy policy makers.
The New Jersey Hydrogen Learning Center is conducting a series of events this year focused on the stakeholder network. Ramapo College is one of several college and university partners. The others are The College of New Jersey, Ocean County College, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and the Rutgers EcoComplex. These partners have fuel cell facilities or hydrogen production facilities, and have joined together to develop hydrogen and fuel cell educational modules and to host networking meetings.
