US DOE Announces Fuel Cell Funding Opportunities

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is offering new funding opportunities for fuel cell and hydrogen power research and development projects as part of its Hydrogen, Fuel Cells & Infrastructure Technologies Program.

The DOE is seeking to fund three research projects that will assess the benefits and drawbacks of hydrogen and fuel cell-based energy systems, and help develop new hydrogen delivery strategies. The first project will involve the study of stationary power generation, the challenges faced by previous hydrogen-based installations and the future role of hydrogen fuel cells in this market. The estimated funding available is $500,000. A second project aims to look at the potential environmental impact of hydrogen-based power systems, assessing the effects of hydrogen emissions and the benefits gained from replacing fossil fuels in the transport and stationary power markets. The possible long-term effects of producing hydrogen from various sources will also be studied, with funding of $600,000 available. The final project involves research and development into hydrogen production and delivery, with particular emphasis on hydrogen storage techniques including compression and off-board bulk storage. The DOE said that $19.3 million was likely to be available to fund this research, although the money would be split between 11 separate projects.
