Description:

The Hydrogen, Fuel Cells, and Infrastructure
Technologies (HFCIT) Program of
the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and
Renewable
Energy (EERE) is soliciting financial assistance applications with the
objective of contributing to industry efforts for and supporting the
President's
Hydrogen Fuel Initiative in developing a path to a hydrogen economy. This
Funding Opportunity Announcement is being issued in accordance with the
Congressional intent specified in the Fiscal Year 2005 Conference Report,
H.
Rept. No. 108-792, which accompanies the Consolidated Appropriations Act,
2005,
Division C - the Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act, 2005,
H.R.
4818, Pub L. No. 108-447 (12/08/2004). The Conference Report language
directs
DOE to conduct a competitive solicitation for solid oxide fuel cell
research
under a cost-shared program. DOE intends to provide financial support for
this
effort under authority of the Hydrogen Future Act of 1996, Public Law
104-271.
Section 104 of this Act requires DOE to conduct a hydrogen research and
development program relating to production, storage, transportation, and
the
use of hydrogen, with the goal of bringing hydrogen systems into the
marketplace.

Under this Announcement, DOE is seeking Applications that will advance high
temperature solid oxide technologies for the co-production of electricity
and
hydrogen. The eligible work scope for this Solicitation is described below
under 'SCOPE.' Information on existing related DOE sponsored programs and
projects can be found at the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable
Energy
web site (www.eere.energy.gov) and the Office of Fossil Energy web site
(www.fe.doe.gov).

DOE's Strategic Plan identifies four strategic goals (one each for defense,
energy, science, and environmental aspects of the mission) plus seven
general
goals that tie to the strategic goals. The HFCIT Program supports General
Goal
4, Energy Security: Improve energy security by developing technologies
that
foster a diverse supply of reliable, affordable and environmentally sound
energy by providing for reliable delivery of energy, guarding against
energy
emergencies, exploring advanced technologies that make a fundamental
improvement in our mix of energy options, and improving energy efficiency.

The HFCIT Program goal is to develop fuel cell technologies and hydrogen
production, storage, and delivery technologies to the point that they are
cost
and performance competitive and are being used by the Nation's
transportation,
energy, and power industries. As a guide for achieving this goal, the
HFCIT
Program has developed a Multi-Year Research, Development, and Demonstration
Plan which details the goals, objectives, technical targets, tasks, and
schedule. This Plan can be viewed at
www.eere.energy.gov/hydrogenandfuelcells.


The HFCIT Program is a key component of the Hydrogen Fuel Initiative.
Together, the Hydrogen Fuel Initiative and the FreedomCAR Partnership will
facilitate the development of both a low-cost hydrogen infrastructure and
advanced hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. Widespread commercialization of
hydrogen-powered vehicles will support our national security interests by
reducing and ultimately eliminating our reliance on foreign oil.
