DOE Announces Notice of Intent to Issue Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research, Development, and Demonstration FOA
The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Fuel Cell Technologies Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled "Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Research, Development, and Demonstration." The FOA will offer up to $35 million, subject to appropriations, for hydrogen production, delivery, and storage research and development; demonstration and deployment of infrastructure components; consortia topics for fuel cell performance and durability and advanced hydrogen storage materials research; and cost and performance analysis for hydrogen production, storage, and fuel cells.
It is intended that the FOA will include four general areas of interest each with several subtopics:

  • Research and Development (R&D)
    • Hydrogen Production R&D: Advanced High-Temperature Water Splitting
    • Advanced Compression
    • Advanced Vacuum Insulation for Automotive Applications
  • Demonstration and Deployments
    • Component Manufacturing and Standardization for Hydrogen Infrastructure (e.g., hose/piping, dispenser/station technologies)
    • Crosscutting: America’s Climate Communities of Excellence
  • Consortia Topics
    • Fuel Cell – Performance and Durability (FC-PAD)
    • Hydrogen Storage Materials – Advanced Research Consortium (HyMARC)
  • Analysis
    • Cost and Performance Analysis for Fuel Cells
    • Cost and Performance Analysis for Hydrogen Storage
    • Cost and Performance Analysis for Hydrogen Production and Delivery

For details, see the Notice of Intent. EERE plans to issue the FOA on or about December 10, 2015. The FOA will be available for viewing at the EERE Exchange website. If applicants wish to receive official notifications and information from EERE regarding this FOA, they should register in EERE Exchange.
