The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of its Fuel Cell Technologies Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Hydrogen Production Research and Development.” It is anticipated that the FOA will include the following topics:
- Integrated or hybrid systems for central, semi-central or distributed production of low-cost, low carbon hydrogen from natural gas
- Thermochemical conversion of bio-derived liquids for distributed or semi-central production of low-cost hydrogen
- Hydrogen production through direct solar water-splitting technologies: advanced materials-based systems for direct solar water splitting for central or semi-central production of low-cost renewable hydrogen.
EERE plans to issue the FOA in early July 2013. The FOA will be available for viewing at the EERE Exchange website. If applicants wish to receive official notifications and information from EERE regarding this FOA they should register in EERE Exchange.
