The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) this week announced six projects selected to receive approximately $9.3 million in federal funding to develop cutting-edge technology solutions to make clean hydrogen a more available and affordable fuel for electricity generation, industrial decarbonization, and transportation. The projects will focus on advancing hydrogen systems that convert varied waste feedstock materials into clean energy with superior environmental performance to help achieve the Biden-Harris Administration's historic decarbonization goals.

The projects selected under this funding opportunity announcement will advance the performance, reliability, and flexibility of existing and novel methods to produce, transport, store, and use hydrogen. Selected projects will help communities by decreasing the volume of wastes sent to landfills and creating local economic opportunities by locating new waste-to-energy plants in these communities.

DOE's National Energy Technology Laboratory, under the purview of FECM, will manage the selected projects. A detailed list of the selected projects can be found here.

Since January 2021, FECM has committed an estimated $138 million in projects that explore new, clean methods to produce hydrogen and to improve the performance of hydrogen-fueled turbines. These projects support DOE's Hydrogen Shot initiative, which seeks to reduce the cost of clean hydrogen by 80% to $1 per 1 kilogram in one decade to grow new, clean hydrogen pathways in the United States.
