These results show that although the DOE has invested extensively in hydrogen storage materials development, no material has been identified that, when incorporated into a complete system, can meet the challenging DOE performance targets. Fuel cell electric vehicles are being introduced commercially today. Therefore, if materials-based storage technologies are to be employed on consumer vehicles in the future, it is imperative that the development of hydrogen storage materials be accelerated and efforts focused on pathways with the highest probability of success. Through an understanding of the material characteristics needed to meet system performance targets, it is expected that material development strategies can be optimized to meet the DOE hydrogen storage targets. In summary, this workshop will serve two main objectives: (1) Disseminate recent results from DOE Hydrogen Storage system modeling efforts and discuss their implications on hydrogen storage materials development efforts. (2) Gather input from meeting participants to identify hydrogen storage materials development pathways and potential future areas of research which will lead to the highest probability of success. This input will be used to help guide future activities for the DOE Hydrogen Storage Program.

CP15–17–000; PF14–1–000] Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC; Notice of Application Take notice that on November 21, 2014, Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (Sabal Trail), 5400 Westheimer Court, Houston, TX 77056, filed an application under section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act, requesting authorization to construct, own, and operate a new 500mile natural gas pipeline system (Sabal Trail Project), including 209,900 horsepower at five compressor stations, metering and regulating stations, and appurtenant facilities in Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. Sabal Trail also requests a certificate of public convenience and necessity to acquire by lease from Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company, LLC (Transco) the incremental firm capacity that will be created by Transco’s proposed Hillabee Expansion Project (Docket No. CP15– 16–000). Sabal Trail also requests a blanket certificate pursuant to Part 157, Subpart F of the Commission’s regulations, authorizing Sabal Trail to construct, operate, acquire and abandon certain facilities as described in Part 157, Subpart F, and a blanket certificate pursuant to Part 284, Subpart G of the Commission’s regulations, authorizing Sabal Trail to provide open-access firm and interruptible interstate natural gas transportation services on a selfimplementing basis with pre-granted abandonment for such services, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open for public inspection. The filing may also be viewed on the web at http://www.ferc.gov using the ‘‘eLibrary’’ link. Enter the docket number excluding the last three digits in the docket number field to access the document.

On October 16, 2013, the Commission staff granted Sabal Trail’s request to utilize the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Pre-Filing Process and assigned Docket No. PF14–1–000 to staff activities involving the project. Now, as of the filing of this application on November 21, 2014, the NEPA PreFiling Process for this project has ended. From this time forward, this proceeding will be conducted in Docket No. CP15– 17–000, as noted in the caption of this Notice. Because the environmental review of the Sabal Trail Project must also include both the Hillabee Expansion Project and Florida Southeast Connection LLC’s E:\FR\FM\11DEN1.SGM 11DEN1
