The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) held the International Hydrogen Infrastructure Workshop on September 11–12, 2018, in Boston, Massachusetts. The workshop was organized by the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Fuel Cell Technologies Office, in coordination with stakeholders from Germany, Japan, and the European Union. This annual event convenes stakeholders from industry, government, and academia to facilitate collaboration in early-stage R&D on hydrogen fueling infrastructure technologies. The workshop objectives were to:

  • Identify areas of hydrogen infrastructure wherein early-stage R&D is necessary to reduce cost and improve reliability
  • Facilitate collaboration between laboratory researchers and industry stakeholders to inform R&D
  • Leverage accomplishments of projects from key stakeholders in infrastructure to accelerate R&D
  • Discuss operational experiences to prioritize systems / processes / techniques that can improve the availability and performance of hydrogen refueling stations
  • Prioritize areas for international collaboration on hydrogen infrastructure
  • Identify regulatory and codes & standards barriers that must be addressed to advance hydrogen infrastructure.
