The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a request for information (RFI) to gather feedback on H2 @ Scale, which is a concept to enable wide-scale deployment of hydrogen to deeply decarbonize the U.S. electricity generation, transportation, and industrial sectors. Examples of areas where feedback is needed include hydrogen production with renewables and process heat (e.g., from nuclear generation), materials development for high-temperature operation, analyses to project necessary energy storage and distribution infrastructure, and development of value-added applications for hydrogen in the industrial sector.
This RFI is being released by the Fuel Cell Technologies Office and includes input from multiple offices across DOE. For details, see the RFI announcement DE-FOA-0001655 or email questions about the RFI to H2Scale@ee.doe.gov with "question" in the subject line. RFI responses must be received no later than 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on November 4, 2016. This RFI is not a funding opportunity announcement; therefore, DOE is not accepting applications for funding regarding this topic at this time.
