Design Of A Hydrogen Community For Santa Monica, Vijay Mohan

Masters Theses

"Hydrogen systems infrastructure development and fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) have the potential to replace the gasoline internal combustion engine vehicles thus increasing energy security and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Hydrogen fueling infrastructure development is critical for the commercialization and consumer acceptability of the FCVs, thus recognizing hydrogen as an affordable transportation fuel. This paper presents the conceptual design of a scalable and reproducible hydrogen fueling station in Santa Monica, California. The various hydrogen production technologies have been evaluated and the usage of renewable energy sources such as biogas and landfill gas has been emphasized. The technical specifications of the hydrogen ...
