The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is proposing to provide federal funding to the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) to combine state-of-the-art alkaline polymer electrolyzer components into one optimized membrane electrode assembly (MEA) system to achieve DOE low temperature electrolysis (LTE) goals. Project work would occur within existing laboratories at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA), Pajarito Powder (Albuquerque, NM), NEL Hydrogen–PEM (Wallingford, CT), and the University of South Carolina (Columbia, SC). Additionally, collaboration is expected to occur with the HydroGEN Energy Materials Network National Laboratory consortium. The project would be completed over three Budget Periods (BPs), with a Go/No-Go Decision Point in between each BP.
