U.S. Shale Revolution and Chemicals Industry Generates Low-Cost Large-Scale Supply of Hydrogen
December 13, 2017
In this webinar, Argonne National Laboratory explained how the U.S. shale revolution is creating thousands of tonnes of hydrogen supply per day, in parallel with rapid growth in the chemicals industry. Additionally, the webinar covered analysis of the expected quantities and costs of by-product hydrogen supply by 2020.
Award Administration and Reporting Requirements for EERE Cooperative Agreements
December 5, 2017
In this webinar, the Fuel Cell Technologies Office provided an overview of the administrative and reporting requirements for new Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) cooperative agreements, focusing on those requirements that can be problematic for both recipients and the EERE.
Hydrogen Fuel Cell Supply Chain Expansion through the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Nexus Directory
November 7, 2017
In this webinar, an overview of the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Nexus directory, the national business website allowing individuals to rapidly find hydrogen and fuel cell supply chain specific businesses, was provided. Additionally, the methods of expanding content and adding businesses or products to the directory were discussed.
Lowering Costs of Hydrogen Pipelines Through Use of Fiber Reinforced Polymers and Modern Steels
September 27, 2017
In this webinar, information was provided about the testing that led to code modifications allowing for the use of fiber reinforced polymer in 100-bar hydrogen service. In addition, researchers discussed ongoing modeling efforts for hydrogen embrittlement, allowing for predictions of steel life in pipelines.
Permitting Hydrogen Fueling Stations
Carbon Fiber Composite Material Cost Challenges for Compressed Hydrogen Storage Onboard Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles
July 25, 2017
In this webinar, a brief overview of the Fuel Cell Technologies Office Hydrogen Storage Program was provided, followed by a discussion of onboard compressed gaseous hydrogen storage in carbon fiber reinforced composite overwrapped pressure vessels (COPVs).
Manufacturing Competitiveness and Supply Chain Analyses for Hydrogen Refueling Stations
May 11, 2017
In this webinar, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) discussed bottom-up manufacturing cost models developed for the main systems in a hydrogen station—including compressors, storage tanks, coolers, and heat exchangers and dispensers. NREL also discussed the results of the models that show that there is room for cost reductions through economies of scale.
Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium (GMLC) Research Efforts Related to Electrolyzers for Grid Services
April 25, 2017
In this webinar, Idaho National Lab (INL) introduced the Energy Department's scope and technical approach related to electrolyzers as a controllable load. This webinar provided attendees an overview of this project and introduced the methods being proposed for demonstrating electrolyzers' advanced smart grid-enabling abilities to provide grid services. INL also introduced scenarios for hydrogen refueling station and grid infrastructure with a reference case in the Bay Area in California.
DOE-FCTO H-Prize Competition Drives Innovation with SimpleFuel
March 16, 2017
In this webinar, Ivys Energy Solutions, winner of the U.S. Department of Energy's Fuel Cell Technologies Office 2014–2016 H2 Refuel H-Prize competition, described the role of competition-based innovation in the launch of the award-winning SimpleFuel Hydrogen Refueling Appliance. SimpleFuel is a compact, cost-effective and readily deployable refueling solution for home-based/fleet applications.
Hydrogen Financial Analysis Scenario Tool (H2FAST) Model Summary and Demonstration
February 14, 2017
In this webinar the National Renewable Energy Lab detailed how H2FAST's financial model is used for evaluating business cases and risk of investments in hydrogen infrastructure. Analysts can apply this tool to evaluate a wide variety of hydrogen infrastructure components and supply chains ranging from production and delivery to retail dispensing stations. This webinar reviewed the functionality of the model and provided some basic analysis examples, and a live Q&A session concluded the webinar.
Manufacturing Cost Analyses of Fuel Cell Systems for Non-Transportation Applications
January 24, 2017
This webinar described Battelle's five-year program to evaluate fuel cell system manufacturing costs at various production volumes, system capacities, and system designs for applications including material handling equipment, primary power and combined heat and power, backup power, and auxiliary power. The ongoing success of fuel cell systems into material handling equipment applications, with real-world value propositions, and how other applications can benefit from this experience were also discussed.
