H2 Refuel H-Prize Schedule Update
Document Number: 2016-10425
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-05-04
Agency: Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
In this notice, DOE is extending the completion schedule for its H2 Refuel H-Prize competition. On October 28, 2014, the Department of Energy (DOE) announced the $1 million competition in the Federal Register, allowing teams from across the United States to compete to develop systems that generate and dispense hydrogen from resources commonly available to residences (electricity or natural gas) for use in homes, community centers, businesses or similar locations, to supplement the current infrastructure roll-out and reduce barriers to using hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles. These Guidelines were updated in a September 3, 2015, Federal Register notice. Both the original and updated guidelines included a competition schedule. A delay in announcing the finalist selection significantly reduced the period for system construction before the start of the originally planned testing period. The announcement was originally planned for December 2015 to provide seven months for the system build as described by the guidelines. However, the announcement was delayed until January 29, 2016. Therefore, DOE is updating the completion schedule to allow a reasonable construction period.
