DoE Pushing Hydrogen, Fuel Cell Research
The U.S. Department of Energy is making as much as $35 million in funding available to advanced hydrogen and fuel cell technology research, according to NGT News.
The funding will go toward research in hydrogen production, delivery and storage research and development, according to the story. In addition, the DoE will support demonstration of infrastructure component manufacturing, support for deployment of hydrogen and fuel cell technology and other initiatives, the story said. The DoE says research aimed at increasing durability and reducing costs also are key goals, the story added.
The advance of fuel cells has been due to the great progress made by electric vehicles. This research is benefiting other industries as well. For instance, Intelligent Energy said this summer that it is purchasing contracts from GTL Limited to provide hydrogen fuel cell technology to power 27,400 telecommunications towers in India.
