The California Energy Commission has awarded grants across the state to support energy research, including a grant to a Sacramento-area company working on hydrogen production for engines and fuel cells.

The Energy Commission, the stateâ¿¿s energy policy and planning agency, is handing out $1.6 million for 13 projects. CHA Corp. of McClellan, Sacramento, will get $95,000 through the Energy Innovations Small Grant Program.

CHA will work on a project to demonstrate microwave-based hydrogen production from biogas for reciprocating engines and fuel cells, according to the commission.

Small businesses, non-profits, individuals and academic institutions can apply for the grants for innovative energy ideas.
