Department of Energy Announces 11 New HydroGEN Projects as part of $42 Million Investment for Innovation in Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies

May 31, 2023

On May 22, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office announced approximately $42 million in funding for 22 new projects to advance critical technologies for producing, storing, and deploying clean hydrogen. The projects advance DOE’s Hydrogen Shot goal of reducing the cost of clean hydrogen to 1 dollar per 1 kilogram in 1 decade (“1-1-1”) and support DOE’s H2@Scale initiative, which aims to increase the affordable production, transport, storage, and utilization of clean hydrogen.

Eleven projects will collaborate with the HydroGEN Consortium to accelerate the development of advanced water-splitting materials for hydrogen production, with a focus on Solar Fuels from Photoelectrochemical (PEC) and Solar Thermochemical (STCH) Water Splitting technologies.
