As the hydrogen industry expands, refueling infrastructure needs to be developed to keep fuel cell electric vehicles powered and moving on America’s roadways. University students can play a big role in this through the Hydrogen Education Foundation’s Hydrogen Student Design Contest, supported by the Energy Department.
The Energy Department released its Grid Energy Storage report to the members of the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, identifying the benefits and challenges
of grid energy storage that must be addressed to enable broader use.
The Energy Department announced more than $7 million in funding for projects in Georgia, Kansas, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee that will help bring cost-effective, advanced hydrogen and fuel cell technologies online faster.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced $73 million in funding for renewable energy projects and $45 million for smart grid technology as part of more than $1.8 billion in funding for electric utility infrastructure projects in 25 states and one territory.
