Title: H2 Refuel H-Prize Safety Guidance
Date: August 6, 2015
Time: 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EDT
The Fuel Cell Technologies Office will present a live webinar entitled "H2 Refuel H-Prize Safety Guidance" on Thursday, August 6, from 1 to 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Safe practices for the production, storage, distribution, and use of hydrogen are essential to establish public confidence and for reducing barriers to widespread acceptance of hydrogen technologies. Safety is one of the basic criteria for the Energy Department's Fuel Cell Technologies Office's $1 million H2 Refuel H-Prize competition. As part of the design submission for finalist selection, contestants must include a safety plan and a hazard analysis. This webinar will include a discussion on safety planning and what information should be included in the safety plan document. There also will be a general discussion on codes and standards and the need for local fire/building approval requirements. Members of the Hydrogen Safety Panel will lead the discussion and answer questions. Questions can be submitted in advance to HPrize@ee.doe.gov, or asked during the webinar.
Title: Analysis Using Fuel Cell MHE for Shaving Peak Building Energy
Date: August 11, 2015
Time: 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. EDT
The Fuel Cell Technologies Office will present a live webinar entitled “Analysis Using Fuel Cell MHE for Shaving Peak Building Energy” on Tuesday, August 11, from 12 to 1 p.m. EDT. This webinar 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 and can be used 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. The webinar includes a techno-economic analysis as well as competitive analysis for the alternative peak-shaving apparatus.
