Renewable Hydrogen Production and HCNG Bus Demonstration: In 2004, the U.S. Department of Energy joined the Hydrogen Transportation Partnership Beijing 2008 ( Partnership ). The Partnership was formed to demonstrate hydrogen-based transportation technologies for the 2008 Olympic Games. The Partnership is a public/private collaborative organization that is working together to advance the research, development, and demonstration of fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen fueling infrastructure. In addition to the U.S. and Chinese governments, the Partnership includes international participants from the automotive, energy, and technology sectors. The participants are working together to build the Beijing Hydrogen Transportation Park. As part of the U.S. contribution to the Partnership, the U.S. DOE is seeking proposals to install renewable hydrogen production equipment to be part of the overall Park fueling infrastructure and five hydrogen/natural gas engines to be installed in buses that will be used to transport athletes during the games. There are two subtopics under this solicitation; separate applications must be submitted for each. Topic 1 Renewable Hydrogen Production Equipment Under this topic, proposals are sought to design, install, and commission a renewable hydrogen production facility to provide 15-20 kg of hydrogen per day via electrolysis. Recipient will be responsible for the installation and commissioning of the Renewable Hydrogen Production Project into the Beijing Hydrogen Park. This will include coordination with site owners and operators to permit renewable power generation equipment, natural gas clean-up system, and compressed gas storage systems. Topic 2 HCNG Bus Demonstration Under this topic, proposals are sought to provide compressed hydrogen/natural gas bus engines. Bids will be sought to obtain five (5) bus engines and to conduct the necessary fuel supply modifications needed for these engines to operate on compressed natural gas and hydrogen/natural gas blends.
