H2IQ Hour: How IPHE is Fostering Global Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Collaboration and Coordination 

April 28, 2020

The April H2IQ Hour features the International Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in the Economy (IPHE) and how the program is fostering collaboration and coordination across multiple countries and other global initiatives to accelerate progress in hydrogen and fuel cells. Established in 2003, the IPHE brings together 19 member countries and the European Commission to share information and join forces in areas such as harmonization of regulations and safety codes and standards, outreach and information dissemination, coordination of activities that are aligned with country minister-level commitments, and other international initiatives. IPHE’s Secretariat Tim Karlsson and EERE’s FCTO Director and IPHE Chair, Sunita Satyapal, will provide an overview of IPHE’s activities, examples of global progress, and ways stakeholders can get involved in IPHE’s efforts to accelerate the adoption of hydrogen and fuel cells in the economy.

Hydrogen Risk Assessment Models Update 2.0

January 28, 2020

This webinar discussed updates to the Hydrogen Risk Assessment Models (HyRAM) software, a toolkit for assessing key barriers to hydrogen use in multiple applications. The presentation focused on HyRAM 2.0's newly flexible fault tree options, how these options fit into the larger set of calculations, and how these can be used in various new ways. The presentation also outlined the newly open-source software's source code structure, how users can perform their own quantitative risk assessments using the underlying Python modules, and how users can integrate their own code developments into HyRAM.
