Hydrogen technology is the focus of this study, with an emphasis on material development to support a hydrogen energy infrastructure. TMS has assembled an expert study team to examine the status, impact, and future opportunities of hydrogen technology for the Department of Energy’s Energy Materials Network (EMN) and EMN’s four hydrogen-related consortia.

The team is leading a 20-month initiative from December 2021 to June 2023. The final report will be released at the 2023 Materials Science & Technology Technical Meeting and Exhibition (MS&T23).

“The Status and Impact of DOE’s Energy Materials Network (EMN) on Hydrogen Technology,” is a TMS science and technology accelerator that is funded by the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology Office (DOE-EERE-HFTO) via Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL).

Planned Milestones

Energy Materials Network (EMN)

  • Scope and prioritize the areas of most promise, for each hydrogen-related consortia and the EMN as a whole
  • Establish a set of metrics to assess the progress and impact of the EMN consortia to date as well as areas of potential growth
  • Deep dive to identify in depth the key gaps, barriers, needs, and enablers to developing the materials necessary for achieving a competitive and robust H2 energy infrastructure
  • Provide concrete recommendations, key milestones, detailed action plans, and implementation pathways needed to help provide a foundation for ultimately transitioning from fundamental concepts to manufactured components
