DOE Releases Preliminary Fuel Cell Cost and Technical Targets for Combined Heat and Power and Auxiliary Power

November 17, 2009

The Department of Energy (DOE) released preliminary technical and cost targets for fuel cells used in combined heat and power and auxiliary power applications. These targets are based on results of a recently issued Request for Information (RFI) on proposed targets. DOE received RFI responses from 18 entities, including a variety of industrial and government laboratory representatives.  Based on these responses, DOE formulated a set of preliminary targets.  Final targets will be published in the next revision of the Fuel Cell Technologies Program Multi-Year Research, Development and Demonstration Plan due to be released in 2010.
