DOE Issues a Request for Information: Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Market Transformation

    February 4, 2009

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a request for information (RFI) seeking stakeholder and public input on potential early markets and deployment opportunities for hydrogen and fuel cells. The information collected will help guide DOE Hydrogen Program efforts to identify key early markets and related green domestic jobs, validate hydrogen and fuel cell system performance through data collection and communicate results, cultivate demand and accelerate market development, and reduce non-technical barriers that hinder market penetration.


    The topics in this RFI include:

    • Early Fuel Cell Market Applications with High Volume Potential
    • Integrated Renewable Hydrogen Systems and Public-Private Community-Based Partnerships
    • Using Biogas and Fuel Cells for Co-Production of On-Site Power and Hydrogen
    • Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Fuel Cell Systems
    • Using Combined Heat, Hydrogen, and Power (CHHP) Systems to Co-Produce and Deploy Hydrogen to Early Market Customers
    • Analysis of Excess and/or Waste Hydrogen Sources

    The full RFI with information about providing comments is available on the DOE e-Center, and it closes on March 31, 2009. (Note: This page may take a minute to load.)
