Department of Energy, Hydrogen Program Plan
- Aug 31, 2021 4:51 pm GMT
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Hydrogen Program Plan (the Plan) communicates DOE’s overarching, crossoffice strategic plan to accelerate research, development, and deployment (RD&D) of hydrogen and related technologies in the United States. The Plan provides an overview of core technology areas, challenges, and research and development (R&D) thrusts that DOE is pursuing to address these challenges through an integrated DOE Hydrogen Program (the Program).
The Program includes activities across multiple DOE offices—including Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), Fossil Energy (FE), Nuclear Energy (NE), Electricity (OE), and Science (SC), and coordinates with the Advanced Research Program Agency – Energy (ARPA-E). While each office has its own planning documents, including program plans and multiyear RD&D plans, this overarching document provides a high-level framework summarizing activities relevant to all offices.
This Plan updates the previous version, which built upon preceding strategic and planning documents including the DOE Hydrogen Posture Plan10 and the National Hydrogen Energy Roadmap. 11 Based on extensive stakeholder input and progress over the last two decades, the Plan serves as a guiding summary of focus areas and the path forward across all relevant DOE offices. In addition to this overarching DOE-wide plan, each office within DOE has its own detailed technical plans and strategies relevant to their mission areas.1
