Announcement for complete
details on application preparation instructions.

The objective of this topic is to solicit Research and Development (R D)
proposals to focus on developing novel technologies and/or process flow
concepts for co-producing hydrogen and electricity. In the U.S., hydrogen
is
viewed as the fuel of choice for the transportation fleet as well as for
central station power generation. During the transition to a sustainable
hydrogen economy, coal is viewed as the key raw material for the production
of
hydrogen via gasification-based technologies. To reduce the cost of
hydrogen
and electricity while simultaneously achieving near-zero emissions of
pollutants and being prepared to capture and sequester carbon dioxide, the
DOE
is interested in exploring novel hydrogen/electricity co-production
processes
to support the vision of a hydrogen economy. When incorporated into a
Co-Production plant process configuration, the novel process concept and/or
the
novel technologies should provide a significant improvement in cost and
performance over conventional technologies and process configurations
already
being investigated or considered for commercial deployment. The overall
process benefit description must include: 1) the assumed cost of products,

i.e., electricity and hydrogen, perhaps varying over time, 2)
justification of
these assumed costs, and 3) the expected scale of the commercial
co-production
plant and why this plant size is the most economical. The overall size of
the
gasification-based co-production plant shall be no smaller than 100 MWe
equivalent in output. The process developed should approach the DOE goal to

achieve a hydrogen cost of $0.80 per gallon of gasoline equivalent at the
plant
gate by 2015.

(Estimated total available funds = up to $6,000,000 for Phases I and II, up
to
two projects, three to four years duration; up to $6,000,000 for Phase III,
one
project; two to three years duration)
