In March 2007 Singapore made a commitment to develop its own centre of excellence for the fuel cell industry by committing to develop a world class facility to further the development of fuel cells and their application through Singapore's school of Engineering at Temasek Polytechnic. Temasek now can boast to having one of the leading fuel cell development programs in the world.
Temasek is host to the Singapore Fuel Cell Community (FCC) which is initiated and supported by Singapore's Economic Development Board (EDB) .
The FCC is part of the government's plan for a fuel cell industry hub that will position Singapore as a place for innovations in fuel cell technology and applications.
Temasek will also assist Palcan to expand its market in Singapore which has embraced the use of hydrogen as part of its country wide green initiative.
