This award is given to Dr. Jim Miller jointly by EERE's Vehicle Technologies and Fuel Cell Technologies programs for his support and leadership over the last two decades across both programs. Beginning in the early 1990s, Dr. Miller was the lead of the Fuel Cells for Transportation Program at Argonne National Laboratory, in direct support of the EERE's program that had just begun. He led the Electrochemical Technology R&D at Argonne (including fuel cell and battery research) for more than 15 years. During his tenure, Dr. Miller provided technical management of the project to build the first DOE-sponsored fuel cell vehicles, convincingly demonstrating the feasibility of using fuel cells to power real-world vehicles operating on methanol. He also worked with DOE program managers to bring the US OEMs into the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles (PNGV) and, subsequently, the FreedomCAR and Fuel Partnership, which led to the development and demonstration of prototype fuel cell passenger cars by each of the Detroit "Big Three." He has spent his entire professional career at Argonne, starting as a Post-Doctoral Appointee conducting basic research on hydrogen in metals and metal hydrides, and then progressing to management of Argonne's various research projects in support of DOE's Hydrogen and Fuel Cells RD&&D Program Plans. Dr. Miller is the author or co-author of more than 100 publications and conference presentations on hydrogen and fuel cells and advanced energy storage topics.
