Joint Meeting on Hydrogen Delivery Modeling and Analysis

On May 8-9, 2007, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) held a meeting to review current and ongoing hydrogen delivery analysis models and related analysis work. The presentations served as a springboard for discussions on modeling assumptions, gaps, and future needs.

Participants discussed proposed changes to the H2A delivery models. The discussion focused on incorporating additional information and insights from the prior year. They also reviewed recent work on potential novel hydrogen carriers for onboard vehicle storage and bulk hydrogen delivery, as well as new models for hydrogen transition analysis.

Attendees included members of the DOE FreedomCAR and Fuel Partnership's Hydrogen Delivery, Storage, and Fuel Pathway Integration Tech Teams and analysts who are developing or using the models.
