WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Fuel cell research received a major boost when the U.S. Department of Energy recently announced $119 million in funding, according to the trade publication Fuel Cell Today. Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman said the funding would help develop clean, hydrogen-fuel vehicles. As much as $100 million will be distributed over four years. About $19 million will go to 12 projects focused on polymer membrane research. The membrane is a critical part of a hydrogen fuel-cell system. Funding recipients include Clemson University, Pennsylvania State University, the University of Central Florida, the University of Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Fuel Cell Energy in Danbury, Conn., and General Electric.
