This page contains links to documents that describe planned activities for DOE's Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office.
The Department of Energy Hydrogen Program Plan provides a strategic view of how the Department conducts and coordinates hydrogen research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) activities under the DOE Hydrogen Program. With participation from the Offices of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), Fossil Energy, Nuclear Energy, Electricity, Science, and ARPA-E, the DOE Hydrogen Program is a coordinated Departmental effort to advance the affordable production, transport, storage, and use of carbon-neutral hydrogen across different sectors of the economy. This version of the Plan updates and expands upon previous versions, including the Hydrogen Posture Plan and the DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program Plan, and provides a coordinated high-level summary of hydrogen-related activities across DOE.
The Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office Multi-Year Research, Development and Demonstration Plan* summarizes the planned program activities.
The 2011 Department of Energy Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program Plan outlines the strategy, activities, and plans of the DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program, which includes hydrogen and fuel cell activities within the EERE Fuel Cell Technologies Office and the DOE offices of Nuclear Energy, Fossil Energy, and Science. It describes the Program's activities, the specific obstacles addressed by each subprogram, the strategies employed, key milestones, and future plans for each subprogram and the Program as a whole. The Plan updates and expands upon previous editions of the Hydrogen Posture Plan, issued in 2006 and 2004.
The Hydrogen Posture Plan, published in December 2006, outlines a coordinated plan for research, development, and demonstration activities under the Hydrogen Fuel Initiative, both at the Department of Energy and the Department of Transportation.
