Notice of Intent to Issue Funding Opportunity Announcement DE-FOA-0002588 "Regional Clean Hydrogen Analysis"
The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office (HFTO), and in coordination across DOE offices, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled "Regional Clean Hydrogen Analysis.”
HFTO’s Regional Clean Hydrogen Analysis FOA would solicit analysis projects to identify and characterize the value proposition of specific regional clean hydrogen deployments that could be successfully implemented over the coming years. Each analysis project solicited in this FOA would be focused on a single potential clean hydrogen deployment that includes production, delivery, storage, and end use, in a specific region (State or several adjacent States) within the United States. Each proposal would study potential hydrogen producers, hydrogen consumers, and the necessary connective hydrogen infrastructure, all located in close proximity, to enable deployment with substantial engagement of local and regional stakeholders. The selected projects will quantify key metrics including decarbonization potential, system cost, revenue potential, and metrics for environmental justice, such as potential for regional economic growth, job creation, reduction in criteria pollutant emissions, and creation of educational and workforce development opportunities. Higher emissions reductions will be strongly encouraged. This FOA would continue HFTO’s ongoing analysis to inform future clean hydrogen deployments that enable innovations related to technology scale-up and manufacturing, as well as economies of scale.
This Notice is issued so that interested parties are aware of the EERE’s intention to issue this FOA in the near term. All of the information contained in this Notice is subject to change. EERE will not respond to questions concerning this Notice. Once the FOA has been released, EERE will provide an avenue for potential Applicants to submit questions.
