The mission of the DOE Hydrogen Program is to research, develop, and validate transformational hydrogen and related technologies including fuel cells and turbines, and to address institutional and market barriers, to ultimately enable adoption across multiple applications and sectors. Its focus areas are:
1. Overcome technical barriers through basic and applied research and development
2. Integrate, demonstrate, and validate “first-of-a-kind” hydrogen and related technologies
3. Accelerate the transition of innovations and technologies to the private sector
4. Address institutional issues including safety concerns, education and workforce development, and the development of codes and standards
5. Identify, implement, and refine appropriate strategies for Federal programs to catalyze a sustainable market and concomitant benefits to the economy, the environment, and energy security
