UND’s Energy and Environmental Research Center Secures Over $4 Million Funding for Hydrogen Cell Technology

The University of North Dakota’s Energy and Environmental Research Center (EERC) has secured $4,200,000 in funding to develop commercially viable hydrogen cell technology. This project aims to lower the operating temperature of O-SOECs, which could improve cell and stack durability. In addition, this advancement could allow for the use of less expensive steel alloys in system construction without sacrificing efficiency.

In October, the Department of Energy (DOE) awarded $925 million to the EERC for their Heartland H2 Hub project in collaboration with Marathon Petroleum, TC Energy, and Xcel Energy. Senator Cramer supported the EERC’s application for funding from the DOE’s Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations to establish the Heartland Hydrogen Hub (HH2H) LLC.

These developments mark significant progress in the research and development of hydrogen cell technology, with potential benefits for both operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness. The partnership between the EERC and key industry players like Marathon Petroleum, TC Energy, and Xcel Energy underscores the importance of collaboration in advancing clean energy solutions.
