The Department of Energy (DOE) has announced that it is soliciting partners for the research, development, and demonstration of fuel cell technologies. The agency intends to enter into approximately 15 cooperative agreements, each one lasting up to five years, with teams of industry, utility, and university partners as well as end users.

DOE plans to award about $7 million for this program in fiscal year 2003, and may award as much as $70 million over the life of the agreements.
