In 2007 the Energy Independence and Security Act authorized the H-Prize to competitively award prizes for advances in hydrogen energy technologies in order to accelerate and reward breakthroughs in notable scientific and engineering challenges, while engaging a broad range of participants. The $1 million H2 Refuel H-Prize challenges America's engineers and entrepreneurs to develop affordable systems for small-scale, non-commercial hydrogen fueling, at homes or multi-use sites that can supplement the current development of hydrogen fueling station infrastructure. Successful entries will install and test systems that generate hydrogen from resources available to most homes, electricity and natural gas, and dispense the hydrogen into vehicles. Winners will demonstrate that they can meet both the technical and cost criteria as outlined in the final guidelines.

Today's notice announces the availability of draft guidelines for administration of the prize competition.

The DOE will consider any comments received within 30 days of the Federal Register Notice publication date.
