The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the availability of 750 million for research, development, and demonstration efforts to dramatically reduce the cost of clean hydrogen.
According to U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm, “thanks to new funding from President Biden’s historic clean energy laws, DOE is accelerating our effort to make this exciting and versatile fuel market-ready within a decade—supercharging America’s drive towards an affordable and secure clean energy economy.”
This funding launches the first tranche of implementation of two provisions of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which authorizes $1 billion for research, development, demonstration, and deployment activities to reduce the cost of clean hydrogen produced via electrolysis and $500 million for research, development, and demonstration of improved processes and technologies for manufacturing and recycling clean hydrogen systems and materials.
DOE envisions granting multiple financial assistance awards in the form of cooperative agreements, with the period of performance being approximately two to five years.
The application process will include two phases: a Concept Paper phase and a Full Application phase. Concept papers are due on April 19, 2023, and full applications are due on July 19, 2023.
