US DOE backs fuel cells

The US government has announced it is investing up to $39 million to support research and development (R&D) ofà‚ hydrogenà‚ and fuel cell technologies.
Energy Live News reports that the funding aims to address key early-stage technical challenges for fuel cells and hydrogen fuel production, delivery and storage related to hydrogen infrastructure.
Anticipated R&D topics include materials and components to reduce cost and station footprint and innovative concepts for reversible fuel cells or direct liquid fuel cells.

The Department of Energy (DOE) said: “As one component of DOE’s portfolio, hydrogen and fuel cells can enable affordable and reliable energy that enhances economic growth and energy security.”

Work recently started on what is expected to be theà‚ world’s largest hydrogen pilot facilityà‚ in Austria.
