Title: Overview of Station Analysis Tools Developed in Support of H2USA
Date: May 12, 2015
Time: 12 to 1 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
The Hydrogen Refueling Stations Analysis Model (HRSAM) and the Hydrogen Financial Analysis Scenario Tool (H2FAST) were developed by Argonne National Laboratory and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, respectively, to address key technical and financial barriers to hydrogen fueling infrastructure deployment. HRSAM will help to assess the impact of station design on the economics and incorporates a station’s capital and operating cost based on key design variables such as station capacity and mode of hydrogen delivery. To complement HRSAM, H2FAST provides in-depth financial analysis including cash flow and return on investments for hydrogen fueling stations based on key financial inputs such as station capital cost, operating cost, and financing mechanisms. This webinar will provide a basic introduction to these two new models.
Title: H2 Refuel H-Prize Technical Data Collection Requirements
Date: May 14, 2015
Time: 1 to 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
The technical testing specifications are now available for the Energy Department's Fuel Cell Technologies Office's $1 million H2 Refuel H-Prize competition, a two-year competition administered by the Hydrogen Education Foundation that challenges America's engineers and entrepreneurs to develop affordable systems for small-scale hydrogen fueling. Finalist entries to the competition will be evaluated on both technical and financial criteria to determine the winner of the $1 million prize. To evaluate the technical criteria such as dispensing pressure, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will collect data from finalist systems using a data collection system. The testing specification documents are intended to inform potential contestants about the type of data that will need to be provided and how to ensure that it is compatible with the data collection system. This webinar will go over the specifications and testing plans and answer questions. Anyone interested in the competition is encouraged to attend, and the webinar will be recorded and posted at the H-Prize website, hydrogenprize.org.
