Notice of posting for public comment, a Request for Information (RFI) on Electrolytic Hydrogen Production Workshop Report.


The Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) invites public comment on its Request for Information (RFI) number DE-FOA-0001188 regarding feedback on the summary report for the Electrolytic Hydrogen Production Workshop held at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in February, 2014. The RFI document is posted at​.

The purpose of this RFI is to solicit feedback from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders on issues related to electrolytic hydrogen production pathways, specifically with respect to the Electrolytic Hydrogen Production Workshop Report. EERE is interested both in information on the current status of electrolytic hydrogen production pathways, technologies, and their potential to meet DOE cost goals as well as feedback on the content of the report, including the key R&D needs as determined by the participants. EERE is also interested in the community's opinion of the electrolysis technologies that have the most potential to produce low cost hydrogen that meets DOE goals.

This is solely a Request for Information and not a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). EERE is not accepting applications at this time.


Responses to the RFI must be received on or before October 30th, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. ET.
