Hydrogen Lessons Learned

In 2007, the Fuel Cell Technologies (FCT) Office released a solicitation for hydrogen lessons learned and awarded the University of Missouri.

The Department of Energy (DOE) sought applications to conduct a study to identify the lessons learned from prior hydrogen-based stationary power programs, including the most significant obstacles, how these obstacles have been approached, outcomes of the programs, and how this information can be used in the DOE Hydrogen Program. DOE seeks to learn from the challenges of previous stationary power programs and use the lessons learned to develop a strategy that systematically incorporates both the stationary and the transportation sectors and defines the various trade-offs, synergies, and opportunities.

Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Analysis: Environmental Impacts of Hydrogen Systems

In 2007, the Fuel Cell Technologies (FCT) Office released a solicitation for hydrogen and fuel cell analysis on the environmental impacts of hydrogen systems. The program awarded the Tetra Tech and the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

The purpose of this project was to identify and examine possible near and long-term ecological and environmental effects of the production of hydrogen from various energy sources (based on the DOE hydrogen production strategy) and the use of that hydrogen as a transportation fuel and for stationary power. This project develops the precise systems-based engineering models of the likely hydrogen and criteria pollutant emissions and quantifies the potential impacts of the different market penetration scenarios.
