The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program is a partnership among four DOE program offices: Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Fossil Energy, Nuclear Energy, and Science. These DOE offices provide useful hydrogen-related financial opportunity information.
Other federal organizations, including the Department of Defense, also offer funding opportunities for hydrogen-related technologies. The Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Interagency Working Group website lists some of these related financial opportunities. In addition, federal and state financial incentives, such as tax credits and grants, can help minimize the cost of hydrogen and fuel cell projects.
