Material Handling Fuel Cells for Building Electric Peak Shaving Applications
Date: Rescheduled due to webinar accessibility and weather issues on the East Coast. Updated schedule information will be sent to our news subscribers and posted on the website soon.
This webinar, presented by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, will explore the synergy between a facility's use of hydrogen fuel cell forklifts and its reduction of electric grid time of use energy charges. Electric fuel cell forklifts use electricity generated from hydrogen fuel. As such, they allow a versatile application of the produced electricity for either mobility or to offset grid charges associated with peak facility demands. The analyzed scenarios will focus on how different buildings can benefit from offsetting their peak energy demands by connecting fuel cells to their internal power systems. Analysis performs a techno-economic analysis as well as competitive analysis for alternative peak shaving apparatus.
National Hydrogen Safety Training Resource for Emergency Responders
Date: March 24, 2015
Time: 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. EDT
The Energy Department's Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO) announces the launch of a new, free, online national hydrogen safety training resource for emergency responders. Developed by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the California Fuel Cell Partnership, the resource provides a single repository of credible and reliable information related to hydrogen and fuel cells that is current and accurate and eliminates duplicative efforts among various training programs. This approach will enable government and private training organizations nationwide to develop their own training programs with consistent hydrogen and fuel cells content and standards.
