Department of Energy extends RFI deadline for fuel cell technology opportunities

As part of a recent update, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has extended the deadline to January 18, 2011, for the Request for Information (RFI) on fuel cell technologies early opportunities. The purpose of this RFI is to obtain information relevant to the core requirements and relevant costs for each of three topic areas of interest.


The three topic areas are as follows: "turnkey" approaches for distributed generation fuel cells in federal facilities; "turnkey" approaches for hydrogen energy storage to support renewable power generation; and the feasibility of commercial deployment of fuel-cell-powered ground support equipment for commercial and government-operated airports.

This will include information pertaining to capabilities in turnkey project implementation, management, cost reduction, and readiness level of applicable hydrogen and fuel cell technologies as identified in the areas of interest.

For the the record, FOA is government speak for Funding Opportunity Announcement.

For details, participants are directed to read the Amended FOA Announcement and submit responses through FedConnectwhich may require registering first (Reference Number DE-FOA-0000429). Comments must be received no later than 11:59 PM EDT on 1/18/2011.
