The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management announced approximately $4.7 million for the research and development of ceramic matrix composite components, improving hydrogen turbine efficiency.
The funding opportunity is intended for six projects focused on furthering the development of ceramic-based materials to improve the performance of hydrogen-powered turbines at higher working temperatures and cut hydrogen-based costs, according to a Sept. 13 news release.
“Investing in research and development to increase hydrogen turbine efficiency will not only help bring down electricity costs, but can ultimately help to ramp up the use of hydrogen as a low-carbon fuel for power production, providing cleaner energy for all Americans,” FECM Assistant Secretary Brad Crabtree said in the release.
The results of these projects are beneficial to the Biden-Harris administration's goal of having a zero-carbon U.S. power sector by 2035, the release reported.
"Just announced: @ENERGY selected 6 projects to receive $4.7M for developing advanced materials that will increase hydrogen turbine efficiency and support the use of hydrogen as a clean, low-carbon fuel for U.S. electricity production," DOE Fossil Energy and Carbon Management said in a post on Twitter.
