In particular, DOE’s Fuel Cell Technologies Program is asking for industry information about transportation electrification using fuel cells.
Specifically this means onboard refrigeration auxiliary power for heavy duty road vehicles, fuel cell rechargers for battery electric vehicles used to transport cargo or passengers, and technology deployment opportunities for other on- or off-road transportation markets.
Higher volume deployments in emerging markets are needed for fuel cell costs to continue to decrease, and feedback on potential early market applications is being solicited.
By collaborating with industry, universities, and national laboratories, DOE’s Fuel Cell Technologies Program is working to overcome technological, economic, and institutional obstacles to enable the widespread commercialisation of fuel cells and related technologies.
