Technical and Economic Assessment of Regional Hydrogen Transition Strategies

This research continues work begun in earlier NREL-supported research to compare the results for hydrogen delivery system design and cost from existing simplified models to those from a highly detailed geographic information system (GIS) model developed at UC Davis. The goal is to compare and validate the simplified models, and further improve them with insights from the GIS models. Detailed GIS models are used to size and site refueling stations in various cities, and estimate the design and cost of urban delivery and refueling systems to serve these stations. These estimates are then compared to the results of simplified city models that use much less detailed input information. The design of infrastructure depends on the city size and population density, so results are compared for several cities encompassing a range of sizes and densities. Alternative market penetration scenarios also are considered.
