Deadline Extended for Fuel Cell Technologies Early Opportunities RFI

December 16, 2010

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has extended the deadline to January 18, 2011, for the Request for Information (RFI) on fuel cell technologies early opportunities. 

DOE requests feedback from relevant industry stakeholders on the deployment of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in three topic areas: “turnkey” approaches for distributed generation fuel cells in federal facilities, “turnkey” approaches for hydrogen energy storage to support renewable power generation, and the feasibility of commercial deployment of fuel-cell-powered ground support equipment for commercial and government-operated airports. 

The purpose of this RFI is to obtain information relevant to the core requirements and relevant costs for each of the three areas of interest. This will include information pertaining to capabilities in turnkey project implementation, management, cost reduction, and readiness level of applicable hydrogen and fuel cell technologies as identified in the areas of interest.

For details, read the amended FOA announcement and submit responses through FedConnect (search for Reference Number DE-FOA-0000429). Comments must be received no later than 11:59 PM EDT on 1/18/2011.
