Hydrogen and fuel cells are emerging, versatile examples within a portfolio of advanced and sustainable energy options. Dr. Sunita Satyapal will provide an overview of hydrogen and fuel cell research, development, demonstration and deployment (RDD&D) activities led by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). The presentation will discuss how EERE’s RDD&D efforts are advancing U.S. commitment to tackling the climate crisis through the DOE Hydrogen Program’s H2@scale vision for clean hydrogen across the economy, and the Hydrogen Energy Earthshot seeking to cut the cost of clean hydrogen to $1 per 1 kilogram in one decade. The presentation will also cover examples of H2@Scale projects demonstrating hydrogen’s emission reduction and economic growth potential in hard to decarbonize sectors such as steel manufacturing and heavy duty applications, as well workforce development and international collaboration activities.
