This report covers efforts by the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute HNEI of the University of Hawaii under the ONR-funded HEET Initiative that addresses critical technology needs for explorationutilization of seabed methane hydrates, developmenttesting of advanced fuel cells and fuel cell systems, an expanded effort on fuel processing and purification, and a new task addressing testing and evaluation of alternate energy sources, with initial activities in testing of heat exchangers for ocean thermal energy conversion OTEC, grid storage, and photovoltaics. In addition to work involving fuel cell testing, HNEI also participated in fuel cell development activities, including efforts in support of biocarbon fuel cells and the development of enzymatic bio-fuel cells.
