DOE awards $1M to project on cost-competitive hydrogen fuel
14 February 2013
The US Department of Energy (DOE) is awarding $1 million to a project to analyze and evaluate potential cost-competitive pathways for producing and transporting hydrogen fuel. The project selected—led by Strategic Analysis, Inc. in Arlington, Virginia—will identify cost-effective and efficient materials and processes to produce hydrogen from renewable energy sources.
The project will conduct thorough cost analyses of hydrogen pathways—including electrolysis from the electrical grid and renewable energy sources, converting biofuels to hydrogen, biomass gasification, solar thermochemical hydrogen, photoelectrochemical, and biological hydrogen—to identify the most economical hydrogen production and delivery methods and highlight remaining research and development challenges.
This investment supports the Energy Department’s broader goal to achieve $2 to $4 per gallon gasoline equivalent (gge) of hydrogen fuel by 2020.
