DOE provides up to $2 million for hydrogen fueling stations data collection

Sunday, April 01, 2012

DOE announced on 13 March that up to 2 million dollars available this year to collect and fueled, analyze performance data for hydrogen refuel stations and advanced components. DOE tracks performance and technical progress innovative gas stations to find systems ways to reduce costs and improve operations. The funding is part of the Department of obligation to help, bring hydrogen technologies in the mainstream market and provide new opportunities for vehicles that are not dependent on petrol.

Many car manufacturers have announced production plans for fuel cell electric vehicles for retail sale or lease as 2015, and some States invest in hydrogen fuel infrastructure to accommodate these vehicles. The new funding supports projects to monitor the performance of several hydrogen filling stations and advanced components for up to five years. The data and analyses resulting from this initiative help also hydrogen the designs of existing systems to improve fueling equipment manufacturers.

DOE is seeking applicants for this funding opportunity new petrol stations technologies test that could significantly reduce the hydrogen. These include advanced compressor design, the the required number or size of the compressors, at petrol stations commercial premises; reduce Hydrogen supplied tanks with higher capacity and optimal tank pressure, which can reduce the need for compressors and the frequency of deliveries to petrol stations websites and advanced electrolysis, potentially producing hydrogen at higher loads, reducing the cost of hydrogen by reducing the amount of post production compression required. Answers are by May 11. Find out the DOE progress and funding opportunity announcement on funding opportunity Exchange Web site.
