The Analysis Repository is a compilation of analyses and analytical models relevant to assessing hydrogen fuel and fuel cell issues. Projects in the repository relate to
- Hydrogen production, delivery, storage, fuel cells, and hydrogen vehicle technology
- Hydrogen production feedstock cost and availability
- Electricity production, central and distributed
- Energy resource estimation and forecasting.
The U.S. Department of Energy created this repository to help analysts, policy makers, businesses, government agencies, and others quickly and easily locate information on hydrogen analyses.
This database is structured much like a library catalog. Each project entry contains information on the principal investigator, sponsor, and purpose—providing enough information for additional searches elsewhere if more information is needed. In some cases, more project details are included, such as reports, links to models, and other related data.
You can find projects using different approaches. The left-hand navigation allows for browsing by either analysis or modeling projects. You can also browse by title, performing organization, principal investigator, and completion date. The search box at the right hand top allows for searches by keyword.
Understanding Analysis and Model Categories
For easy location of projects by general subject area, analyses and models are grouped into seven categories.
Cross-cutting: Analysis of infrastructure elements, including water, and fuel quality.
Energy infrastructure: Macro-system modeling as well as analysis and modeling of non-hydrogen energy infrastructures.
Environmental: Analysis of environmental effects of hydrogen, hydrogen infrastructure, and fuel cells.
Hydrogen fuel pathways: Resource analysis, production and delivery pathway analysis, transition modeling specific to hydrogen fuel pathways, cost analysis and modeling relevant to hydrogen fuel, and lessons learned from other alternative fuels specific to hydrogen infrastructure development.
Macro-economic: Analysis and modeling of macro-economic systems.
Vehicle options: Vehicle systems analysis, vehicle penetration analysis, modeling, and forecasting, market and consumer analysis for transition and long-term, lessons learned from other alternative fuel vehicles, competitive impacts (such as plug-ins and hybrids), cost analysis and modeling specific to vehicle options.
Well-to-wheels: Assessment of life-cycle impacts of technologies, including impacts of feedstock recovery, fuel production, fuel delivery, and vehicle operation.
