DOE said projects selected for funding will demonstrate, deploy, and validate hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in real-world environments. These efforts are aimed at reducing the costs of hydrogen and fuel cells, expanding critical infrastructure, and building a solid domestic supplier base. Selected projects will represent a variety of applications with potential for widespread commercialization.
Project topic areas include:
• Rooftop installations of hydrogen fuel cell backup power systems: Projects selected under this topic area will focus on demonstrating the viability of fuel cell-powered rooftop backup power systems.
• Hydrogen meter R&D: Projects under this topic area will support the development of highly accurate meters used to measure the mass of dispensed hydrogen fuel.
DOE will make available up to $9 million for up to eight projects from industry, academia, and national labs. More information, application requirements, and instructions can be found at
