The U.S Department of Energy is offering up to $35 million in grant funding to advance hydrogen fuel cell vehicle technologies, the federal agency has announced.

By supporting research and development, early market deployments, and domestic manufacturing, the department hopes that this extra funding will speed up the development of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

The available funding includes hydrogen production, delivery, and storage research and development (R&D); demonstration of infrastructure component manufacturing, and support for Climate Action Champions deploying hydrogen and fuel cell technologies; consortia topics for fuel cell performance and durability and advanced hydrogen storage materials research; and cost and performance analysis for hydrogen production, storage, and fuel cells.

As FCEVs become increasingly commercially available, the Energy Department is focused on advancements to enable hydrogen infrastructure including production, delivery, storage, and manufacturing, as well as continuing to reduce fuel cell cost and improve durability. 

Some of the research being done includes development of advanced compression and vacuum insulation for automotive applications.

More information, application requirements, and instructions can be found on the EERE Funding Opportunity Exchange website.
