Infrastructure Development and Financial Analysis

Infrastructure Development and Financial Analysis quantifies the total costs of scenarios for developing the hydrogen infrastructure, including production, delivery, and utilization. By combining the results of previous analyses in the analysis spectrum, infrastructure development analysis can identify economical routes and financial risks for providing the lowest delivered cost of hydrogen from combinations of central and distributed production facilities. Evaluations of the costs, impacts on existing infrastructures, and timelines of various scenarios for the development of a hydrogen infrastructure will be conducted through 2005.
