    DOE ISSUES NOTICE OF INTENT TO PROVIDE FUNDING FOR CLEAN HYDROGEN AND GRID RESILIENCE PROJECTS TO SUPPORT CLIMATE GOALS


    July 29, 2022 - States News Service

     

      The following information was released by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE):

      The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today issued a notice of intent for a potential funding opportunity to accelerate the research, development, and demonstration (RDandD) of clean-hydrogen technologies and grid resilience. The potential funding will advance the Biden Administration's goals of achieving carbon-free electricity by 2035 and net-zero carbon emissions across the entire economy by 2050.

      "Today's announcement marks an important milestone to advance critical technologies for clean hydrogen and to make our grid more resilient," said Kelly Speakes-Backman, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. "These efforts will help lower the costs of clean hydrogen, increase grid resilience, catalyze industry investment for market uplift, and result in a cleaner environment for all Americans, especially historically disadvantaged communities."

      This potential funding will advance the Hydrogen Shot goal of reducing the cost of clean hydrogen to $1 per 1 kilogram in 1 decade ("1 1 1"), while supporting DOE's H2@Scale initiative to develop clean and affordable hydrogen across multiple sectors in the economy and improve energy resilience. These goals will be advanced through RDandD efforts in several areas, including advanced pathways for solar-based hydrogen fuel production; technologies for high-resolution hydrogen sensing; demonstrations of materials-based hydrogen storage and transport systems; and development of high-performance, durable, low-cost fuel cell components for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles.

      The potential funding will also seek to establish a grid resilience university consortium with agreements between universities in the United States, Canada, and Mexico to foster information sharing on best practices and cross-border dependencies. This consortium will work collaboratively with tribes, states, regions, industry, utilities, and other stakeholders to support grid resilience planning and pilot projects that can serve as a model for others.

      DOE envisions awarding multiple financial assistance awards in the form of cooperative agreements, with the period of performance being approximately two to four years. DOE encourages applicant teams that include stakeholders within academia, industry, and national laboratories across multiple technical disciplines. Teams are also encouraged to include representation from diverse entities such as minority-serving institutions or through linkages with Opportunity Zones.
