Graphic shows icons for the three HydroGEN technologies: photoelectrochemical water splitting, solar thermochemical water splitting, and low- and high-temperature advanced electrolysis.
The HydroGEN Advanced Water Splitting Materials consortium aims to accelerate the research, development, and demonstration of advanced water splitting technologies for clean, sustainable hydrogen production.

HydroGEN is a consortium of six U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratories that will address advanced water splitting materials challenges by making unique, world-class national lab capabilities in photoelectrochemical, solar thermochemical, and low- and high-temperature electrolytic water splitting more accessible to academia, industry, and other national labs.

Led by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the HydroGEN consortium includes Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, Idaho National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Savannah River National Laboratory. HydroGEN is funded by DOE's Fuel Cell Technologies Office in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

HydroGEN aims to facilitate collaborations between federal laboratories, academia, and industry. The consortium is guided by a steering committee with representatives from each member lab and DOE. The steering committee is available to clarify the capabilities offered by the consortium and to help interested users identify capabilities relevant to a given research project.

HydroGEN will leverage national lab consortia launched under DOE's Energy Materials Network (EMN) this past year and will support the Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) and advanced manufacturing priorities. The EMN consortia have been launched to make unique, world-class capabilities at the national laboratories more accessible to industry and academia, facilitating collaborations that will expedite the development of advanced materials.
