SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The EERE Fuel Cell Technologies Program seeks to advance the 
development and deployment of fuel cells for power generation in a 
variety of stationary, portable, and transportation applications. In 
support of this goal, EERE funds a broad range of hydrogen and fuel 
cell technologies research, development and demonstration (RD&D) 
activities.
    The Program is currently working to identify appropriate 
performance and cost requirements for fuel storage subsystems for near-
term, early markets for fuel cells. The requirements will be driven by 
consumer/user expectations for the various applications, rather than by 
the operating parameters or constraints of specific technologies. Cost 
and performance requirements and their accompanying time-based targets 
will be set with industry and market input and will help guide the RD&D 
required for improvements in physical storage systems and/or solid 
state storage materials, designs, and systems.
