Testing and certification to gauge the safety, reliability and performance of fuel cells.

UL services provide increased confidence and transparency in the safety, reliability and performance of fuel cells.

Fuel cell usage cases are extremely broad, ranging from alternative electrical and heating sources for buildings to alternative power sources for vehicles. Fuel cells also function as renewable power sources for cellphones and other electronic equipment. They provide backup voltage sources for uninterruptible power supplies used to protect critical computer and telephone applications as well as supplemental power during periods of peak demand by utility companies.

UL provides an array of services that helps to bring trustworthy products to market quickly. We develop standards and work with leading stakeholders in developing regional regulations and industry best practices.

We test and certify fuel cells to UL Standards for fuel cells and related energy storage technologies.
