The United States Department of Energy declared SimpleFuel the winner of one million USD in the H-Prize competition. The competition was launched in 2014, inviting the American innovators to make an on-site system for producing hydrogen that can be used in homes, community homes, small businesses, or similar locations. SimpleFuel’s domestic-size device can charge a vehicle with one kilogram of hydrogen in 15 minutes, using hydrogen produced by electrolysis, with a cost-effective design that minimizes the “ecological footprint” of the device. SimpleFuel began as a collaboration between three major companies: Ivys Energy Solutions (Massachusetts), McPhy Energy N.A. (Massachusetts), and PDC Machines (Pennsylvania).
