Worldwide Investment & Interest Are Strong and Growing Interest in fuel cells and hydrogen is global, with more than $1 billion in public investment in RD&D annually. Worldwide fuel cell markets continue to grow (~30,000 units shipped in 2012; ~35% increase over 2011) Sources: Navigant Research, DOE Fuel Cells Market Report

DOE Program: RD&D to Deployments DOE R&D • Reduces cost and improves performance DOE Demonstrations & Technology Validation Deployments • DOE Recovery Act and Market Transformation Projects • Government Early Adoption (DoD, FAA, California, etc.) • Tax Credits: 1603, 48C • Validate advanced technologies under real-world conditions • Feedback guides R&D Examples of progress: Transportation Fuel Cell System Cost - projected to high-volume (500,000 units per year) - Status: $55/kW (high vol) Target: $30/kW Recovery Act & Market Transformation Deployments Demonstrated >180 FCEVs, 25 stations, 3.6 million miles traveled • Reduced cost of fuel cells 50% since 2006 • 2020 target $40/kW, ultimate target $30/kW • Examples—validated: • 59% efficiency • 254 mile range (independently validated 430-mile range) • 75,000-mi durability Demonstrated world’s first tri-gen* station (250 kW fuel cell on biogas, 100 kg/d of H2) Nearly1,600 fuel cells deployed Reduced cost of electrolyzer stacks 60% since 2007 Program also includes enabling activities such as codes & standards, analysis, and education. *Stationary fuel cell providing heat, hydrogen, and power.
Fuel Cell Cost Reduction • Projected high-volume cost of fuel cells has been reduced to $55/kW (2013)* • More than 30% reduction since 2008 • More than 50% reduction since 2006 *Based on projection to high-volume manufacturing (500,000 units/year) and assuming Pt price is $1,500/troy ounce. The projected cost status is based on an analysis of state-of-the-art components that have been developed and demonstrated through the DOE Program at the laboratory scale. Additional efforts would be needed for integration of components into a complete automotive system that meets durability requirements in real-world conditions.
Hydrogen Production - Strategies Technology Readiness of DOE Funded Production Pathways NE FE Established Industrial Process High-temp Electrolysis STCH PEC 50,000 Natural Gas Reforming Coal Gasification With CCS Photo-biological Biomass Gasification Electrolysis (solar) Distributed Central Electrolysis (wind) Today - 20152015-20202020-2030 Natural Gas Reforming Electrolysis (Grid) Bio-derived liquids Fermentation Biomass pathways – mid term solar pathways- longer term P&D Subprogram R&D efforts successfully concluded FE, NE: R&D efforts in DOE Offices of Fossil and Nuclear Energy, respectively ≥500,000 Estimated Plant Capacity (kg/day) Up to 1,500 100,000
Hydrogen ProductionStrategies Goal: Develop technologies to produce hydrogen from clean, domestic resources at a delivered and dispensed cost of $2-$4/gge H2 Projected High-Volume Cost of Hydrogen Production for Different Pathways • Cost ranges are shown in 2007 dollars, based on projections from H2A analyses, and reflect variability in major feedstock pricing and a bounded range for capital cost estimates. • Projections of costs assume Nth-plant construction, distributed station capacities of 1,500 kg/day, and centralized station capacities of ≥50,000 kg/day.
Hydrogen Delivery Station costs dominate delivery costs—key focus area. Refueling Station Cost Breakdown** * The use of 350 bar tube trailers has led to lower station costs, however they still account for >50% of the total projected delivery cost. • Delivery Focus • Identify cost drivers for H2 delivery in early market applications • Evaluate options to improve station compressor reliability • Investigate the role of higher-pressure tube trailers in reducing station costs * Details for the high volume cost projection assumptions can be found in Record 13013 **Based on HDSAM (v2.3) analysis assuming 10% market penetration in a city with a population of 1.5M and 2011 technology
Hydrogen Storage Cost Reduction for Hydrogen Adsorption Systems Cost reduction Start Time to Full Flow (-20°C) Wells-to-Power Plant Efficiency Strategic Analysis 3X increase in tensile strength demonstrated in C-fiber from melt-spun PAN precursor (ORNL) Launched open source database* on Hydrogen Storage Materials Properties (http://hydrogenmaterialssearch.govtools.us/) * Included in President’s Materials Genome Initiative, http://www.whitehouse.gov/mgi
