Hydrogen Delivery System Project
Problem Statement: Cost effective and feasible methods to deliver hydrogen to consumers for use in automobiles does not exist.
Goals for Hydrogen Delivery: By 2017, Cost of hydrogen delivery from the point of production to the point of use in vehicles or stationary power units <$1.00 per kg of hydrogen in total or $0.01 / mile @ a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle mileage of 100 miles / gallon of gasoline equivalent (gge). 1,2 It is expected that the overall delivery costs will be the largest cost contributor to the hydrogen retail cost.
Roles and Responsibilities: The Hydrogen Team is taking on the role of an oil company that is looking to add Hydrogen Energy to the company product portfolio and establish a supply chain for distribution of Hydrogen for consumer Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCVs), similar to current vehicle fuel distribution system:
The Hydrogen Team will perform analysis in this oil company role in order to support a business case and investment strategy.
The Hydrogen Team will develop a business / technology strategy and architecture to:
• Determine Risks, Requirements, Refine Goals
• Drive investments in technology areas in order to meet target goals
• Drive organizational decisions on investment via a business case
