USA: Opportunity for Geothermal Energy Industry to Influence Production of Hydrogen

Energy Department Releases Request for Information on Multi-Sector Uses of Hydrogen (DOE)

Responses are due October 31, 2018, at 5:00 PM Eastern Time.

At today’s H2@ Scale project kickoff meeting in Chicago, Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE)’s Deputy Assistant Secretary for Transportation Steven Chalk announced the release of a request for information (RFI) soliciting stakeholder feedback on opportunities to enable high volume production and multi-sector use of hydrogen.

Hydrogen is an energy carrier and a feedstock used in industrial applications today including petroleum refining, ammonia production for fertilizers, and steel production, and can also be used in fuel cells to generate power for homes or to drive cars, buses or trucks. With the help of this RFI, hydrogen use could be expanded and made more affordable across multiple applications such as energy storage, running large turbines at power plants, supporting grid flexibility and enabling baseload operation of nuclear plants, as well as increased renewable power generation.
