Barack Obama cuts funding for hydrogen fuel cells projects
President Barack Obama released details of his FY2010 proposed budget, which recommends major cuts of funding for hydrogen and fuel cell projects. Within the budget for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, the Administration proposes zeroing out funding for the Hydrogen Program, which was funded at $168.9 million in the FY2009 Appropriations bill. The Administration instead recommends $68.2 million in funding for “Fuel Cell Technologies,” refocusing the program on fuel cell systems R&D for stationary, portable, and transportation applications. In the DOE Office of Fossil Energy, the budget proposes zeroing out funding for Hydrogen from Coal Research, which received $20 million in the FY2009 budget. The Fossil Energy budget’s Fuel Cells activity proposes $54 million for the Innovative Systems Concepts/SECA program, a reduction of $4 million from the FY2009 appropriation. The Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Network has established an action alert for concerned citizens to “Tell Congress to Restore Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Funding”.
