The Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Interagency Action Plan guides collaborative federal agency efforts to research, develop, demonstrate, and deploy hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

The Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Interagency Working Group is composed of federal agencies that collaborate and share information about hydrogen and fuel cells.

Participating agencies exchange information on research, development, and demonstration projects. They also collaborate on activities to foster safe, cost-effective, and environmentally beneficial hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

This site also serves as a portal to participating agency activities. Find details on agency activities related to hydrogen and fuel cells by visiting participating agency websites.

For more information on upcoming events and news, visit the U.S. Department of Energy Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office website.

Announcements

DOE Announces Request for Proposals for H2@Scale

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a request for proposals for research and development (R&D) projects that support DOE’s H2@Scale vision for large-scale, affordable hydrogen production, storage, distribution, and utilization across multiple sectors. Proposals are due by Friday, August 14, 2020.

U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Army Issue Solicitation to Develop H2Rescue

An interagency collaboration between the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Department of Defense (DoD) will support the development of H2Rescue, a fuel cell/battery hybrid truck that first responders and the military can drive to disaster mitigation sites. It can provide sufficient hydrogen to provide power, heat, and even potable water for up to 72 hours.

OECIF Issues FY19 Call for Proposals

The Operational Energy Capability Improvement Fund (OECIF) has issued an FY19 call for proposals. The OECIF funds energy innovation that improves the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) operational effectiveness via targeted investments aligned with DoD’s Operational Energy Strategy. In FY19 the OECIF theme is “enhancing energy storage to improve lethality and warfighting performance,” which refers to increasing the military capabilities energy provides our forces and/or reducing the burdens and risks created by the need to sustain our forces with energy. View the call for proposals on the Correspondence and Task Management System (CATMS).
