The University of Oregon will share a $2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy with two other organizations to research hydrogen storage materials for fuel cells.

 

The funds are available as part of a push on the part of the feds to fund technologies that can be used in fuel cell electric vehicles.
"Targeted investments in cutting-edge hydrogen storage technologies will spur American ingenuity, accelerate breakthroughs and increase our competitiveness in the global clean energy economy," said Energy Secretary Steven Chu in a press release.

Researchers from the organizations will work together on hydrogen storage material for use in mobile and stationary fuel cells.
