Validation of Hydrogen Refueling Station Performance and Advanced Refueling Components

Funding: Up to $2,000,000

Open Date: 03/13/2012

Close Date: 05/10/2012

Funding Organization: U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Fuel Cell Technologies Program

Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000626


Using hydrogen, fuel cells can lead to substantial energy savings and reductions in imported petroleum and carbon emissions. To realize these benefits, DOE’s Fuel Cell Technologies Program focuses on funding fuel cell research and development (R&D) and technology validation activities supporting a portfolio of fuel cell and hydrogen fuel technologies and applications. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), which specifically supports the Technology Validation subprogram, will test, demonstrate, and validate hydrogen refueling components and complete systems in real-world operating environments. Feedback will be provided to the DOE hydrogen and fuel cell R&D projects, industry partners, and end users to help determine what additional R&D is required to move the technology forward. Projects resulting from this FOA will include hydrogen refueling station data collection and demonstration of advanced refueling components needed to support fuel cell applications.

With this FOA, DOE is accepting new applications for projects seeking to validate hydrogen technologies in the specific topic areas listed below. Only applications that are responsive to one of these topic areas will be accepted, and only one topic area may be addressed per application. The objective of each proposed project must be to test, demonstrate, and validate hydrogen technologies in real-world environments. R&D of these technologies is not the focus of this effort and will not be funded through this announcement, except as described in the FOA for Topic Area 2 only.

  • Topic Area 1: Hydrogen Refueling Station Data Collection
  • Topic Area 2: Validation of Advanced Refueling Components
