DOE Releases Hydrogen Posture Plan

The Hydrogen Posture Plan, recently transmitted to Congress, outlines a coordinated plan for activities under the Hydrogen Fuel Initiative, both at the Department of Energy and the Department of Transportation. This document serves as an update of the previous plan, issued in February 2004, for integrating ongoing and future hydrogen research, development, and demonstration activities into a focused Hydrogen Program.

Executive Summary from the Hydrogen Posture Plan:

"The Hydrogen Posture Plan was prepared by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Offices of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy; Fossil Energy; Science; Nuclear Energy, Science and Technology; and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to outline the activities, milestones, and deliverables that the Federal government plans to pursue to support the development of hydrogen-based energy systems. The Hydrogen Posture Plan integrates the planning and budgeting for program activities that will aid in this development. More specifically, this Plan outlines the DOE role in hydrogen energy research and development, in accordance with the National Hydrogen Energy Vision and Roadmap.2, 3 The Plan lays the foundation for a coordinated response, including collaboration with the DOT, to the President's plan for accelerating implementation of hydrogen infrastructure and fuel cell technologies."
