On the 18th of January, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Fuel Cell Technologies Office signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) to enhance collaboration on hydrogen (H2) and fuel cell research and development (R&D).
Through this MOU, MEDC will leverage capabilities at DOE’s national laboratories to enhance analysis and data collection to guide future R&D. Michigan and DOE will also work to develop emerging H2 infrastructure technologies and grow the domestic supply chain.
DOE’s Fuel Cell Technologies Office focuses on advancing an innovative portfolio of H2 and fuel cell technologies through early stage applied research and technology development. Technology R&D includes H2 production from diverse domestic resources, including renewable, fossil, and nuclear resources; infrastructure development including H2 delivery and storage; and fuel cells for transportation, stationary and portable applications.
Through its H2@Scale initiative, the office brings together stakeholders to advance affordable H2 utiliSation to increase revenue opportunities in multiple energy sectors. This collaboration’s activities will support the DOE’s goals of strengthening energy security, resiliency, and a strong domestic economy.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy is investing $4m in federal funding for four national lab-led research and development projects to identify new concepts and technologies for producing oxygen (O2) via air separation for use in flexible, modular gasification systems.
