The US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy (FE) has announced plans to make $160m in federal funding available to help develop technologies for the production, transport, storage and utilisation of fossil-based hydrogen.
Announcing the new capital on Friday (15th Jan), DOE said its efforts would help recalibrate the nation’s vast fossil-fuel and power infrastructure for decarbonised energy and commodity production.
Applications for the funding opportunity, titled DE-FOA-0002400, Fossil Energy Based Production, Storage, Transport and Utilisation of Hydrogen Approaching Net-Zero or Net-Negative Carbon Emissions, will aim to make significant advancements in the below programme areas:
- Net-zero or negative carbon hydrogen production from modular gasification and co-gasification of mixed wastes, biomass, and traditional feedstocks.
- Solid oxide electrolysis cell technology (SOEC) development
- Carbon capture
- Advanced turbines
- Natural gas-based hydrogen production
- Hydrogen pipeline infrastructure
- Subsurface hydrogen storage
The FOA will be used to solicit research and development for specific areas of interest aligned with the above seven program areas. Successful applications will be of different monetary values and project durations.
