DOE Announces New Lab Consortia to Advance Hydrogen and Fuel Cell R&D
Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the intention to invest up to $100 million over five years in two new DOE National Laboratory-led consortia to advance hydrogen and fuel cell technologies research and development (R&D). This funding is subject to appropriations. One consortium will conduct R&D to achieve large-scale, affordable electrolyzers, which use electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, and can be powered by various energy sources, including natural gas, nuclear, and renewables. This R&D will complement and help support large industry deployment by enabling more durable, efficient, and low-cost electrolyzers.The other consortium will conduct R&D to accelerate development of fuel cells for heavy-duty vehicle applications, including long-haul trucks. This initiative will set a five-year goal to prove the ability to have a fully competitive heavy-duty fuel cell truck that can meet all of the durability, cost, and performance requirements of the trucking industry.

EU plans green hydrogen push, with hints of blue - draft
Speech by EU Energy Commissioner Simson at the Global Hydrogen Forum 2020
"First, we need to activate a virtuous circle of increased supply and demand for hydrogen, boosting demand in end uses, like industrial applications and transport, and investing in developing electrolysers with greater capacity. Part of this is bringing down the cost of clean hydrogen to make it competitive. For this, we need more and cheaper renewable energy, and an efficient electricity market."

Germany Capitalizes On Crisis With Big Bet On Hydrogen
The Germans have woken up to hydrogen's potential due to several factors. First, the availability of large quantities of cheap electricity due to the installment of wind turbines and solar panels improves the business case for green hydrogen. Second, Germany requires green hydrogen to decarbonize its industry. Thirdly, Berlin is aware of the watershed moment and the potential to become a global powerhouse for hydrogen-related technologies. Therefore, policymakers recently unveiled a €9 billion (approximately $10.2 billion) economic stimulus package to kick-start the hydrogen economy.
