Description (excerpt):

The Basic Energy Sciences (BES) Workshop on Hydrogen Production, Storage, and Use, held May 13–15, 2003, was stimulated in part by an earlier study commissioned by the Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee (BESAC) to assess the basic research needs to assure a secure energy future. The charge to that study was to identify the fundamental scientific challenges of the 21st century that “… Basic Energy Sciences must consider in addressing the [DOE] missions in energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, improved use of fossil fuels, safe and publicly acceptable nuclear energy, future energy sources, science-based stockpile stewardship, and reduced environmental impact of energy production and use.” The study identified 10 basicresearch directions in response to this charge, one of which was “Basic Research toward the Hydrogen Economy.”
