This page contains documents that outline U.S. DOE efforts to develop a hydrogen-based energy system.
Hydrogen Production Roadmap: Technology Pathways to the Future, published in January 2009, identifies research pathways leading to hydrogen production technologies that produce near-zero net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Developed by the US DRIVE, Hydrogen Production Technical Team (HPTT).
Hydrogen Production: Overview of Technology Options, published in January 2009, summarizes the Hydrogen Production Roadmap and the seven promising technology options for producing hydrogen. Developed by the US DRIVE, Hydrogen Production Technical Team (HPTT).
The Hydrogen Posture Plan, published in December 2006, outlines a coordinated plan for activities under the Hydrogen Fuel Initiative, both at the Department of Energy and the Department of Transportation. This document serves as an update of the previous plan, issued in February 2004, for integrating ongoing and future hydrogen research, development, and demonstration activities into a focused Hydrogen Program.
The National Hydrogen Energy Roadmap, published in November 2002, provides a blueprint for the coordinated, long-term, public and private efforts required for hydrogen energy development.
A National Vision of America's Transition to a Hydrogen Economy—to 2030 and Beyond was published in February 2002 as a result of the Hydrogen Vision Meeting. This document summarizes the potential role for hydrogen systems in America's energy future.
The President's Hydrogen Initiative: U.S. DOE's Approach — Paper presented at the Biennial Asilomar Conference on Energy and Transportation on the Hydrogen Transition. Steve Chalk, Fuel Cell Technologies Office Manager (July–August 2003).
