US DOE Unveils Funding To Advance Clean Hydrogen Technologies

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has announced nearly US$42 million in funding for 22 projects in 14 states to advance critical technologies for producing, storing, and deploying hydrogen.

The 22 projects will develop technologies for solar fuels, created by harvesting sunlight. In addition, they will demonstrate higher-density and lower-pressure hydrogen storage technologies, lower the costs of hydrogen fuel cells for medium- and heavy-duty transportation applications, and improve hydrogen-emissions detection and monitoring. Projects selected to improve hydrogen emissions detection will supplement the DOE’s work on hydrogen leakage and advance the broader field of leakage detection and monitoring technologies.

The projects will be managed by the DOE’s Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office and will also advance the DOE’s Hydrogen Shot goal of reducing the cost of clean hydrogen to US$1 per 1 kilogram in one decade.
