The U.S. Department of Energy announced a $40 million funding opportunity for the advancement and deployment of clean hydrogen technologies.

The department also announced the launch of a $20 million university research consortium, which will focus on assisting states and Tribal communities with the establishment of grid resilience and decarbonization programs, according to an Aug. 23 news release.

“DOE is laser focused on building a future with cleaner manufacturing, transportation and electricity — all of which can be achieved with clean hydrogen technology,” Energy Secretary Jennifer M. Granholm said in the release. “These investments will advance cutting-edge technologies and empower state, territory and tribal leaders to make the best, informed decisions about improving and decarbonizing the electric power grid.”

The department is hoping to make strides toward President Joe Biden's goal of reaching a net-zero carbon economy by 2050, focused on prioritizing historically disadvantaged communities, by lowering the costs of clean hydrogen and aiming investments toward clean technologies, the release reported.

"Lowering the costs of clean hydrogen. Catalyzing industry investment for market uplift. Supporting grid resilience & decarbonization. @eeregov continues to work towards a cleaner environment for all w/ its latest hydrogen funding opportunity," the U.S. Department of Energy said in an Aug. 23 post on Twitter.

The application process for both the clean hydrogen funding opportunity announcement and the university consortium funding will take part in two phases: a concept paper and a full application. Concept papers will be due Sept. 23, and full applications will be due Dec. 1.
