Fuel Storage Performance Requirements for Early Market Cell Applications
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) has issued a Request for Information (RFI) seeking input from prospective fuel cell system users, fuel cell component and system suppliers and other stakeholders on performance and cost requirements for fuel storage subsystems for near-term, early market fuel cell applications (e.g., for mobile applications such as fork lifts, stationary back-up power, portable power, etc) . This RFI is intended to be ``fuel neutral'' with the focus on defining the fuel storage needs and requirements for early market fuel cell applications to facilitate successful market transformation in a competitive environment. This information will be used by DOE in a preliminary assessment and ultimate determination of the storage system performance requirements. A public Workshop on the same topic will be held the afternoon of November 16th, in conjunction with the Fuel Cell Seminar, Nov 16-20, Palm Springs, CA.
