NOTE: The following Fuel Cell line items were part of the Vehicle Technology Program (VTP) in FY 2009 but were transferred back to Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technologies (HFCT) in FY 2010: Technology Validation, $14,789; Safety, Codes and Standards, $12,238; Education, $4,200, Shaded areas indicate a name or structure change that began with the 2011 budget request. All budgets are shown in the 2011 structure. Acronyms are defined in Appendix E. Estimated budgets were received by the committee from DOE in early 2012 and may have changed since that time.

and lighter-weight materials, would all potentially benefit all future propulsion systems and are therefore judged worthwhile.

The recipients of DOE’s FY 2012 funds by sector (national laboratories, industry, academia, etc.) are shown in Figure 5-1. The pattern is broadly similar to that in prior years (see NRC, 2010, Figures 5-1 and 5-2).

The trend continues in the FY 2013 Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) budget request illustrated in Table 5-3, with hydrogen activities (Fuel Cell Technologies Program [FCTP]) allocated $80 million (a reduction of 23 percent), while the VTP overall is allocated $420 million (an increase of almost 28 percent over the equivalent FY 2012 total of $329 million), including a 75 percent increase for battery R&D.

Toward the end of the period covered by the NRC Phase 3 report, another major initiative related to U.S. DRIVE Partnership goals emerged. That was the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 and its massive funding of advanced technologies under the umbrella of economic stimulus. This
