author Added by FuelCellsWorks, November 19, 2015

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 aboutDecember 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.
