DOE asking for help finding hydrogen fuel cell market

Does DOE stand for hydrogen fuel cell in some language I don't understand? I know that the Department of energy finds the funds for cellulosic biofuels and plug-ins, but it also spends more than one might expect on hydrogen fuel cell technology - e.g., $130 million here and $100 million there - especially when the DOE's own projections don't make hydrogen vehicles look that hot.

Nonetheless, the DOE has put out another call for hydrogen help. Specifically, a "Request for Information (RFI) seeking stakeholder and public input on potential early markets and deployment opportunities for hydrogen and fuel cells." The DOE wants to find places where fuel cells can make an impact on the market, whether in vehicles or as on-site power generation. More details, including how to submit responses, here.
