Description: Amendment 000001: Revised the Closing Date to June 9, 2014. Revised the information regarding the Pre-Solicitation Workshop at the 2014 Annual Merit Review. The Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO) is seeking feedback from the research community and relevant stakeholders to assist in the development of topics for a potential Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for fuel cells and fuel cell systems designed for transportation, stationary, and early market applications as well as cross-cutting stack and balance of plant (BOP) component technology.
The purpose of this RFI is to solicit feedback on R&D needs for and technical barriers to the widespread commercialization of fuel cells for transportation, stationary, and early market segments. Feedback from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders is sought.
FCTO is specifically interested in information on R&D needs and priorities concerning the development of low-cost fuel cell components and pathways leading to improved fuel cell performance and durability. Input received from this RFI will be considered prior to FCTO issuing a fuel cell FOA (subject to Congressional appropriations). Information on where to submit questions regarding the content of the announcement and where to submit questions regarding submission of responses can be found in the full RFI posted on the EERE Exchange website at https://eere-exchange.energy.gov.
THIS RFI IS NOT A FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT (FOA); THEREFORE, DOE IS NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS.
