The International Center for Hydrogen Energy Technologies (ICHET) has been implementing measures to demonstrate potential benefits of "hydrogen and fuel cell systems" in developing countries. To achieve its mission, ICHET implements pilot demonstration projects, provides applied research and development funding, and organizes workshops, education and training activities together with industry for early adaptation. Project results from various demonstrations including fuel cell forklift, fuel cell based Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS), an island project, and renewable energy systems integrated mobile house will be covered below.
