Ammonia as an Alternative Energy Storage Medium for Hydrogen Fuel Cells: Scientific and Technical Review for Near-Term Stationary Power Demonstration Projects, Final Report

This research focused on understanding the scientific and technical aspects of the potential use of ammonia and other related carbon-free energy carriers for hydrogen fuel cell applications. A range of potential applications for fuel cell technology are growing, enhanced by policy-related events as well and the emergence of new and improved advanced hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. This research effort consisted of three primary tasks: 1) a literature review for the use of ammonia and related compounds as a fuel/energy carrier, especially for stationary hydrogen fuel cell applications; 2) an assessment of the current state of technical performance and economics of existing commercial and pre-commercial technologies for ammonia supply for fuel cell applications; and, 3) a suggested demonstration plan for a physical demonstration of an ammonia/hydrogen/fuel cell system for operations for the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).
