DOE Releases a Hydrogen Sensor Funding Opportunity Announcement

    March 10, 2009

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a hydrogen sensor Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). The goal of this FOA is to develop low-cost sensor technologies that can be directly integrated with hydrogen systems and are resistant to contaminants. The sensor must detect/measure hydrogen in situ. For each sensor project, an applicant must explain how a proposed technology will exceed the current state of the art. The goal is to develop a sensing technology for determination of hydrogen presence prior to reaching a flammable mixture. Sensors should be suitable for at least one of the following applications: stationary systems, portable devices, transportation, or infrastructure.


    Applications for this FOA must be accessed, completed, and submitted through to be considered for award. For more information, visit the DOE e-Center.
