Upcoming Webinar July 9: Hydrogen Production Analysis Using the H2A v3 Model

July 3, 2013

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) will present a live webcast on Tuesday, July 9, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. EERE has developed a series of publicly available techno-economic modeling tools for evaluating the environmental impacts and costs of hydrogen delivered to fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). This webinar will address one of these models in detail, the H2A (Hydrogen Analysis) model.

H2A allows a user to estimate the cost of producing hydrogen from a variety of different technical pathways and feedstock resources and can be used to compare the relative advantages of various production technologies for cost-effective and environmentally friendly hydrogen production. In addition, H2A analysis of individual pathways can identify primary cost drivers, the projected high cost of hydrogen based on the current technology status, and the key remaining research and development challenges to meeting cost and performance goals for hydrogen production.

The webinar will include information on the H2A model concept and structure, types of input data required, and methods for running the model. Results of analysis, which include the levelized cost of hydrogen, identification of the major cost contributors, and sensitivity analysis will also be featured. An example case study of hydrogen production from electrolysis of water will be presented to illustrate the H2A process.
