DOE to Invest up to $8.2 M for Hydrogen Storage Research

U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Samuel W. Bodman announced DOE plans last week to provide up to $8.2 million, over four years (FY’07-’10), for six hydrogen storage research projects, directly supporting President Bush’s Advanced Energy Initiative (AEI).

“Increasing hydrogen’s efficiency and storage capacity are crucial to its long-term success,” said Secretary Bodman, “and we are eager for this research to help move us toward making hydrogen vehicles with a 300-mile plus driving range commercially available to consumers.” Selected organizations are Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne, IL) for up to $1.88 million for storage research; Miami University (Oxford, OH) for up $1.44 million for storage research; Sandia National Laboratories (Livermore, CA) for up to $2.0 million for materials safety research; United Technologies Research Center (East Hartford, CT) — two awards: up to $1.07 million for materials safety research and up to $1.01 million for storage research; and University of Hawaii (Honolulu, HI) for up to $810,000 for storage research.
