New Report Describes Joint Opportunities for Natural Gas and Hydrogen Fuel-Cell Vehicle Markets

Sandia, supported by the DOE’s Vehicle Technologies and Fuel Cell Technologies offices (within the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, EERE), recently released “Transitioning the Transportation Sector: Exploring the Intersection of Hydrogen Fuel Cell and Natural Gas Vehicles.” The September 2014 workshop considered common opportunities and challenges in expanding hydrogen and natural gas use […]

Linde, Sandia Partnership Looks to Expand Hydrogen Fueling Network

Sandia and industrial gas giant Linde LLC have signed an umbrella cooperative R&D agreement (CRADA) that is expected to accelerate the development of low-carbon energy and industrial technologies, beginning with hydrogen and fuel cells. On December 10, 2014, Linde opened the first-ever, fully certified commercial hydrogen fueling station near Sacramento with support from the California […]

Storing Hydrogen Underground Could Boost Transportation, Energy Security

Large-scale storage of low-pressure, gaseous hydrogen in salt caverns and other underground sites for transportation fuel and grid-scale energy applications offers several advantages over above-ground storage, says a recent Sandia study sponsored by the DOE Fuel Cell Technologies Office. Geologic storage of hydrogen gas could make it possible to produce and distribute large quantities of […]

Sandians Won Best Poster Award at the ASME 12th Fuel Cell Science, Engineering, and Technology Conference

Brian Somerday and Joe Ronevich (both in Sandia’s Hydrogen and Combustion Technology Dept.) won the Best Poster Award for their presentation “Assessing Hydrogen Pipeline Reliability: Quantifying Susceptibility of Pipeline Steels to Hydrogen Gas-Accelerated Fatigue Crack Growth” at the ASME 12th Fuel Cell Science, Engineering and Technology Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. One pathway for delivering H2 […]

Fuel-Cell-Powered Mobile Lights Tested, Proven, Ready for Commercial Use

Mobile lighting systems powered by hydrogen (H2) fuel cells are cleaner, quieter, and now have a proven track record in applications such as nighttime construction, sports and entertainment events, and airport operations, making them ready for commercialization and broader use. The DOE Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO), Boeing, Multiquip, Altergy Systems, and other private-sector partners […]
