A joint program between Rochester Institute of Technology and Delphi Corp.’s automotive systems will get $1.6 million to apply fuel-cell technology into U.S. Department of Defense power systems.
The funding will come from the federal Defense Appropriations Act., Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-Perinton, announced late Wednesday afternoon.
“The fuel-cell sector is an emerging growth market that could generate an estimated $15 billion in revenue globally over the next 10 years,” Slaughter said in a statement. “The collaboration between RIT and Delphi has the potential to cement Rochester as a hub of knowledge-based jobs developing tomorrow’s energy solutions.”
