Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Technologies Research, Development & Demonstrations

The DOE has announced $35 million in available funding to advance hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. As part of the Administration’s all-of-the-above energy strategy, this funding will accelerate American innovation in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies by supporting research and development, early market deployments, and domestic manufacturing. As FCEVs become increasingly commercially available, the Energy Department is focused on advancements to enable hydrogen infrastructure including production, delivery, storage, and manufacturing, as well as continuing to reduce fuel cell cost and improve durability. This FOA includes highly targeted and collaborative lab-led consortium projects in both fuel cells and hydrogen storage technologies.

The FOA includes four general areas of interest:

(1) Research and Development (R&D)
          • Hydrogen Production R&D: High-Temperature Water Splitting compatible  
             with renewable & sustainable energy sources
          • Advanced Compression
          • Advanced vacuum insulation for automotive applications
(2) Demonstration and Deployments
          • Component Manufacturing and Standardization for hydrogen Infrastructure
            (e.g., hose/piping, dispenser/station technologies)
          •Crosscutting: America’s Climate Action Champions
(3) Consortia Topics
          • Fuel Cell - Performance and Durability (FC-PAD)
          • Hydrogen Storage Materials – Advanced Research Consortium (HyMARC)
(4) Analysis
          • Cost and Performance Analysis for Hydrogen Storage
          • Cost and Performance Analysis for Hydrogen Production and Delivery
