DOE and TARDEC to collaborate on hydrogen and fuel cells for military use

The US Department of Energy (DOE) and the US Army a memorandum of understanding to collaborate in the development of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies for military and civilian use.

The MOU will enable the two research organizations to work more closely on technologies that can meet both organizations’ goals.

Army TARDEC is the United States Armed Forces’ research and development facility for advanced technology in ground systems. Research is underway at Army TARDEC to develop fuel-cell-powered vehicles for tactical uses, among other activities.

The Energy Department’s Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO), within the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, focuses on advancing an innovative portfolio of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies through early-stage applied research and development (R&D) of technologies. This R&D includes hydrogen production from diverse domestic resources including renewable, fossil, and nuclear resources, infrastructure development including hydrogen delivery and storage, and fuel cells for transportation, stationary, and mobile applications.



Will this be a duplication of what 10+ private FC manufacturers have been doing for the last 10+ years?
