The Department of Energy announced October 5 $1 million to evaluate the most promising technology paths toward achieving $2 to $4/gallon gasoline equivalent of hydrogen fuel or less by 2020. The 2-4 selected projects will, over 3-4 years, help identify cost-effective and efficient materials and processes to produce hydrogen from renewable energy sources and natural gas, and will include annual analyses of technology challenges using the agency’s Hydrogen Analysis models.
