SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 2007 the Energy Independence and Security 
Act authorized the H-Prize to competitively award prizes for advances 
in hydrogen energy technologies in order to accelerate and reward 
breakthroughs in notable scientific and engineering challenges, while 
engaging a broad range of participants. The $1 million H2 Refuel H-
Prize challenges America's engineers and entrepreneurs to develop 
affordable systems for small-scale, non-commercial hydrogen fueling, at 
homes or multi-use sites that can supplement the current development of 
hydrogen fueling station infrastructure. Successful entries will 
install and test systems that generate hydrogen from resources 
available to most homes, electricity and natural gas, and dispense the 
hydrogen into vehicles. Winners will demonstrate that they can meet 
both the technical and cost criteria as outlined in the final 
guidelines.
    Today's notice announces the availability of draft guidelines for 
administration of the prize competition.
    The DOE will consider any comments received within 30 days of the 
Federal Register Notice publication date.

    Issued in Golden, CO, on March 12, 2014.
