Energy Department Releases its Hydrogen Program Plan
Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released its Hydrogen Program Plan to provide a strategic framework for the Department’s hydrogen research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) activities.
The DOE Hydrogen Program is a coordinated Departmental effort to advance the affordable production, transport, storage, and use of hydrogen across different sectors of the economy. The Plan involves participation from the Offices of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), Fossil Energy (FE), Nuclear Energy, Electricity, Science, and the Advanced Research Projects Agency–Energy.
“Hydrogen has the potential to integrate our nation’s energy resources. To fully recognize hydrogen’s potential across the economy, we need to see a significant increase in hydrogen supply and demand, and we need to lower costs,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette. “EERE is excited by the Department-wide efforts and collaborations outlined in this Plan to cement hydrogen’s place among our energy options.”
