The Department of Energy selected Los Alamos National Laboratory for one of 10 projects to develop hydrogen storage technologies.
A DOE announcement Thursday stated that the award was for up to $2.3 million for a “novel concept using an electric field to increase the hydrogen binding energy in hydrogen adsorbents.”
LANL will receive $100,000 to begin the contract, which will run through September 2011, according to an announcement by Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M. Thursday.
The awards are part of DOE’s National Hydrogen Storage Project, related to hydrogen storage activities for vehicles and focusing primarily on enabling a driving range of greater than 300 miles, within packaging and cost constraints.
The project’s scope includes development of novel hydrogen storage materials, development of efficient methods for regeneration of hydrogen storage materials, and approaches to increase hydrogen binding energies to enable room temperature hydrogen storage.
The LANL contract will involve LANL materials research to meet the department’s on-board storage goals, with the overall objective of achieving a 300-mile driving range for light, hydrogen-fueled cars, without compromising the performance or space needs of the vehicle.
