The U.S. Department of Energy's Fuel Cell Technologies Office has issued a request for information (RFI) seeking feedback from the research community and relevant stakeholders to assist in the development of topics for a potential funding opportunity announcement in 2015 for fuel cells and fuel cell systems designed for transportation, as well as stationary and early market applications, including cross-cutting stack and balance of plant component technology.
The purpose of this RFI is to solicit feedback on R&D needs for and technical barriers to the widespread commercialization of fuel cells. Feedback from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders is sought. The Fuel Cell Technologies Office is specifically interested in information on R&D needs and priorities concerning the development of low-cost fuel cell components and pathways leading to improved fuel cell performance and durability.
For details, see the RFI announcement DE-FOA-0001133 or email questions about the RFI to firstname.lastname@example.org with "question" in the subject line. RFI responses must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. (EDT) on June 2, 2014. This RFI is not a funding opportunity announcement; therefore, DOE is not accepting applications for funding regarding this topic at this time.
