The US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is issuing Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) to support early-stage, innovative technologies and solutions, including approaches to cost‐effective hydrogen (H2) use in manufacturing.
EERE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) works with universities, national laboratories, and for-profit and nonprofit partners to identify and solve technology challenges in manufacturing.
H2 is currently used in a range of manufacturing industries, notably the petroleum refining industry; and is also used in chemical production, metal refining, food processing and electronics manufacturing.
The focus of this topic is not necessarily to reduce the cost of H2 generation, but rather to explore options for the potential use of H2 feedstock.
These activities are directly relevant to, and will be coordinated with, EERE’s Fuel Cell Technologies Office, which focuses on H2 and fuel cell technology, including renewable, low-cost H2 production.
Successful projects will reduce the technical uncertainty and develop new knowledge associated with potential breakthrough materials, processes and tools for US manufacturers that could improve their competitiveness and enhance their energy efficiency.
AMO anticipates making approximately 24 to 40 awards to fund projects for up to 36 months. Individual awards may vary from $250,000 to $2.5m.
The US Departemnt of Energy’s (DOE’s) Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO) has announced the top three states in hydrogen (H2) and fuel cell industry activities while now seeking stakeholder feedback to improve standardised manufacturing in the industry.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) has offered a conditional commitment to guarantee loans of up to $2bn to Lake Charles Methanol, LLC to construct the world’s first methanol production facility to employ carbon (CO2) capture technology in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
