The research, development and demonstration (RD&D) activities to be funded under this FOA will support the government-wide approach to the climate crisis by driving the innovation that can lead to the deployment of clean energy technologies, which are critical for climate protection. Specifically, this FOA will support the goals of the H2@Scale Initiative, which aims to advance affordable hydrogen production, transport, storage, and utilization to enable decarbonization and revenue opportunities across multiple sectors. These objectives align with DOE’s Hydrogen Shot, which targets affordable clean hydrogen production at $1/kg within the decade. Advancing technologies that will facilitate the adoption of clean hydrogen technologies will support the goal of net zero GHG emissions by 2050.

Topic Areas Include:

  • Topic 1: Hydrogen Carrier Development
  • Topic 2: Onboard Storage Systems for Liquid Hydrogen
  • Topic 3: Liquid Hydrogen Transfer/Fueling Components and Systems
  • Topic 4: M2FCT: High Performing, Durable Membrane Electrode Assemblies for Medium and Heavy-Duty Applications
