R&D // 2006 // Lab Call for Research and Development for On-Board Vehicular

Funding: Up to $6 million

Open Date: 03/27/2006

Close Date: 05/10/2006

Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-PS36-06GO96012P


The Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is soliciting applications in support of the President’s Hydrogen Fuel Initiative to develop a pathway to a hydrogen economy. This funding opportunity announcement seeks to fund the research and development of viable hydrogen storage technologies for on-board vehicular applications.

Applications are requested in the following categories:

  • Category 1: Applications are sought for projects that are supportive of and complementary to the activities of the existing Hydrogen Storage Centers of Excellence in Metal Hydrides, Chemical Hydrogen Storage, and Carbon-Based Materials. Such projects must help establish important new technical approaches or capabilities not presently available at the centers.
  • Category 2: Applications are sought for independent research and development projects that address one of three technical topics: (1) materials discovery, (2) engineering science, or (3) systems, safety, and environmental analyses.

Additional Information:

The primary organization that submits a proposal for this laboratory call must be a national laboratory as defined by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. National labs include:

  • Ames Laboratory
  • Argonne National Laboratory
  • Brookhaven National Laboratory
  • Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
  • Idaho National Laboratory
  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
  • Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
