Clean Hydrogen Electrolysis Program - American Cities Climate Challenge

Clean Hydrogen Electrolysis Program

Federal Agency

Sub-Department

Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE)

Purpose

To establish an R&D, demonstration, commercialization, and deployment program to improve the efficiency, increase the durability, and reduce the cost of producing clean hydrogen using electrolyzers.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

Eligible uses include (1) the demonstration of technologies that produce clean hydrogen using electrolyzers; and (2) the validation of information on the cost, efficiency, durability, and feasibility of commercial deployment.

Decarbonization Considerations

Hydrogen is a potential substitute for carbon-based fuels. Developing clean, effective electrolysis methods are critical for production. Municipalities and local leaders can partner to create regional hydrogen clusters, working in tandem with grant-eligible private entities.

Equity Considerations

See the "Equity Design Considerations for Federal Funding" for general considerations and additional sector-based resources: https://cityrenewables.org/resources/equity-design-considerations-for-federal-funding/
