DOE Fuel Cell Office to Provide $1 Million Funding for Manufacturing Work


The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) and Fuel Cell Technologies Office have announced plans to add $1 million for hydrogen and fuel cell topics related to the AMO-supported multi-lab consortium on roll-to-roll manufacturing capabilities.

According to the DOE, the four-lab consortium currently includes the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Argonne National Laboratory and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

The consortium will provide a materials-genome-driven fabrication, modeling, simulation, processing and manufacturing effort to demonstrate the feasibility of process controls and scale-up of roll-to-roll manufacturing.

The agency says that this effort aims to address specific industry challenges through cost-shared Cooperative Research and Development Agreements with industry partners and, ultimately, enable the development of a competitive, domestic supply chain.
