U.S. DOE Launches $1 Million H2 Refuel H-Prize Competition for Small-Scale Hydrogen Refueling System

By | October 29, 2014

The Energy Department today announced the launch of the $1 million H2 Refuel H-Prize.  This two-year competition challenges America’s engineers and entrepreneurs to develop affordable systems for small-scale, non-commercial hydrogen fueling. These projects will continue to deploy hydrogen infrastructure across the country to support more transportation energy options for U.S. consumers, including fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs).  Successful entries will install and test systems that generate hydrogen from resources available at most homes, like electricity or natural gas, and provide the hydrogen to fuel vehicles. This competition plans to offer a $1 million cash prize to the team that demonstrates the best system.
