Please note, the RFI submission deadline has been extended to June 1, 2013.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is issuing a Request for Information (RFI) seeking input from stakeholders on proposed cost targets for fuel cells designed for automotive applications. The purpose of this RFI is to solicit feedback from developers, manufacturers, end users, and other stakeholders on proposed cost and durability targets for automotive fuel cell systems. The proposed targets are $40/kW in 2020 and $30/kW for the ultimate target (2030) for automotive fuel cell system cost, and 5000hrs or 150,000 miles for durability. This RFI is not and will not lead directly to a Funding Opportunity Announcement; therefore the DOE is not accepting applications at this time.
The full content of the announcement can be found on the EERE Exchange website at https://eere-exchange.energy.gov.
Comments in response to this RFI must be provided as an attachment to an e-mail message addressed to FCcosttargets@go.doe.gov. All responses to this RFI must be delivered electronically to the aforementioned e-mail address. DOE would prefer that responses to this RFI be no more than 5 pages in length. Targets should represent values required to meet end user expectations, and should not reflect the abilities or limitations of a particular technology. Any questions related to this RFI should be submitted to the email address provided above. DOE will not publish any report or compendium of responses received from this RFI.
THIS RFI IS NOT A FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT (FOA); THEREFORE, DOE IS NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS.
