The Department of Energy (DOE) seeks feedback from stakeholders for technology deployment activities aimed at verifying the commercial readiness of fuel cell and hydrogen technologies, consistent with DOE¿s on-going efforts and mission. Areas of interest include the following:
Area of Interest 1: Innovative, Commercially Ready Fuel Cell Systems for Specific Applications.
Subtopic 1A: Auxiliary Power Units (APUs) for Refrigerated Trucks.
Subtopic 1B: Fuel Cell Recharging Systems for All-Electric Light- or Heavy-Duty Trucks.
Area of Interest 2: Technology Deployment Projects for Other On- or Off-Road Transportation Markets.
The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to gather feedback from stakeholders prior to DOE potentially issuing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). This RFI is not a FOA; therefore, DOE is not accepting applications at this time. DOE may issue a FOA in the future, providing approximately 45 calendar days for applicants to prepare and submit applications. However, DOE may also elect not to issue a FOA. There is no guarantee that a FOA will be issued as a result of this RFI. Responding to this RFI does not provide any advantage or disadvantage to potential applicants if DOE chooses to issue a FOA regarding the subject matter. Final details, including the anticipated award size, quantity, and timing of DOE funded awards, will be subject to Congressional appropriations and direction.
