FuelCell Energy  (FCEL) – Get Report was climbing Friday after the clean-power producer and storage company said it had been awarded an $8 million contract by the U.S. Department of Energy.

Shares of the Danbury, Conn., company at last check were up 6.7% to $2.54. 

FuelCell Energy said the contract supports design and manufacture of a SureSource electrolysis platform that can produce hydrogen.

(Reuters) – Intel Corp on Friday said that it has won a second-phase contract in a project aimed at helping the U.S. military make more advanced semiconductors within the United States.

Under the project, Intel will help the military develop prototypes of chips using its semiconductor packaging technology at factories in Arizona and Oregon. The packaging technology allows pieces of chips called “chiplets” from different providers to be combined into one package, helping cram more features into a smaller finished product while lowering its power consumption.

Intel declined to disclose a dollar figure for its portion of the contract, which is being overseen by the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division. Intel won part of the first phase of the contract in 2019.

Intel’s work with the Defense Department comes as U.S. officials focus on boosting domestic semiconductor manufacturing in response to the rise of China as
