DOE Announces up to $2 Million for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Development

June 4, 2014

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced up to $2 million to develop the domestic supply chain for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, and to study the competitiveness of U.S. hydrogen and fuel cell system and component manufacturing. As a part of the Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative, this funding opportunity reportedly supports the DOE’s broader effort to boost U.S. competitiveness in the manufacturing sector.

This funding is intended to support projects that focus on scaling-up the production of today's hydrogen and fuel cell components and systems to commercial scale. Currently, these components and systems are being built using laboratory-scale fabrication technologies, but developing a robust supply chain to support mass production of these systems can enable the market for these technologies to grow.

To support these priorities, the Energy Department is issuing a funding opportunity to carry out outreach activities to facilitate the development and expansion of the domestic supply chain of components and systems necessary for the manufacturing and scale-up of hydrogen and fuel cell systems in the U.S., and to conduct a competitive analysis of global hydrogen and fuel cell manufacturing aimed at quantifying trade patterns and identifying key drivers of U.S. competitiveness.
