A spectrum of analysis methodologies are used in combination to provide a sound understanding of hydrogen and fuel cell systems and developing markets, as follows:
- Resource Analysis
- Technological Feasibility and Cost Analysis
- Environmental Analysis
- Delivery Analysis
- Infrastructure Development and Financial Analysis
- Energy Market Analysis
In general, each methodology builds on previous efforts to quantify the benefits, drawbacks, and risks of different hydrogen development scenarios. The systems analysis program uses a consistent set of models and data for transparent analytical evaluations.
