Hydrogen Program to Host Review of Projects
May 11, 2006
Scientists and researchers from academia, industry, and government will convene next week in Washington, D.C. for the 2006 DOE Hydrogen Program Merit Review. This annual event features progress reports from all projects funded in 2006 and merit reviews conducted by more than 150 reviewers selected for their expertise in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.
This is the peer review of the entire DOE hydrogen project portfolio, which includes projects in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, as well as the Offices of Science; Fossil Energy; and Nuclear Energy, Science and Technology. The opening plenary will be available via webcast. It begins at 8:30 am EST on Tuesday, May 16 and will feature remarks from DOE officials, followed by technology reviews and discussion panels covering hydrogen storage, fuel cells, hydrogen delivery, and hydrogen production (renewable, fossil, and nuclear), as well as updates on FutureGen and carbon capture and sequestration technology.
Please refer to page two of the program agenda for plenary details. To view the plenary via webcast, go here to sign up and then log on starting at 8:30 am EST on May 16.
