DOE Picks 30 Materials Research Projects to Advance Fuel Cell, Hydrogen Tech Development

The Energy Department will allocate approximately $15.8 million in funds to support 30 materials research projects that seek to facilitate the development of fuel cell and hydrogen storage technology platforms designed for use in transportation.

DOE selected the projects through a funding opportunity announcement of the office of energy efficiency and renewable energy’s fuel cell technologies office, the agency said Thursday.

The chosen research efforts will cover four topics that include platinum group metal-free catalyst and electrodes, hydrogen storage materials discovery, precursor development for carbon fiber and advanced water splitting materials research.

DOE will allow the projects to leverage several U.S. laboratory consortia introduced through the agency’s Energy Materials Network.

These include the Electrocatalysis Consortium, HydroGEN Consortium, Hydrogen Materials-Advanced Research Consortium, Lightweight Materials Consortium and the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation.
