These roadmaps and program plans guide and document the strategy, activities, and plans for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office.
The U.S. National Clean Hydrogen Strategy and Roadmap explores opportunities for clean hydrogen to contribute to national decarbonization goals across multiple sectors of the economy. It provides a snapshot of hydrogen production, transport, storage, and use in the United States today and presents a strategic framework for achieving large-scale production and use of clean hydrogen, examining scenarios for 2030, 2040, and 2050.
The Department of Energy Hydrogen Program Plan provides a strategic view of how DOE conducts and coordinates hydrogen research, development, and demonstration activities under the DOE Hydrogen Program. With participation from the Offices of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Fossil Energy and Carbon Management, 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.
The Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office Multi-Year Research, Development and Demonstration Plan is currently being updated.
The U.S. DRIVE partnership plan, roadmaps, and accomplishments provide information about U.S. DRIVE, which stands for Driving Research and Innovation for Vehicle efficiency and Energy sustainability. DOE is a member of U.S. DRIVE and participates on several technical teams related to hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.
Past Roadmaps and Program Plans
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.
