U.S. Energy Department aims to bring the cost of making clean hydrogen down 80% in 10 years

Washington, June 9 - Neftegaz.RU. The US Energy Department said it had set a goal of procuring ways to cut the cost of hydrogen as an energy source by 80% over the next decade.
Through the so-called Hydrogen Shot programme, the government said it was looking for ways to cut that to $1 per kg in one decade.

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm called the target «ambitious yet achievable» as she launched the Energy Earthshots scheme: an «all-hands-on-deck» call for R&D initiatives to speed up low-carbon energy deployment.

Granholm said the Earthshots, which calls for projects that address technological challenges and cut costs, will tackle «the toughest remaining barriers to quickly deploy emerging clean energy technologies at scale».
She noted:
  • Clean hydrogen is a game changer
  • It will help decarbonise high-polluting heavy-duty and industrial sectors, while delivering good-paying clean energy jobs and realising a net-zero economy by 2050
The US Energy Department this year has already awarded more than $6 million to 8 universities to research hydrogen as a clean-burning fuel.
The Department 's overall fiscal year 2022 budget request seeks roughly $400 million for various hydrogen-related efforts.

Clean hydrogen fuels are viewed as a promising technology for use by the transport sector, such as powering cargo ships and large trucks, and for energy storage.
They may also play a key role in decarbonizing heavy industrial processes.
