DOE Hydrogen Pipeline R&D Project Review Meeting

On January 5th and 6th, 2005, the FreedomCAR and Fuels Partnership Hydrogen Delivery Tech Team hosted a project review meeting at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The invitees included industry, university and national laboratory representatives involved in DOE-funded research related to hydrogen distribution via pipelines. Representatives also attended from the NATURALHY project to discuss pipeline-related activities being conducted under this European consortium. The purpose of the meeting was to review the progress and plans of the R&D projects and to facilitate collaboration among researchers.
