Sandia and NREL Announce Two New H2FIRST Reports

Sandia National Laboratories and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) announce the publication of two new Hydrogen Fueling Infrastructure Research and Station Technology (H2FIRST) reports on hydrogen contaminant detection capabilities and reference station design analysis. H2USA is a public private partnership launched by the US Department of Energy in 2013 to overcome the critical barriers […]

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 […]

Direct Measurement of Key Molecule Will Increase Accuracy of Combustion Models

Sandia researchers are the first to directly measure hydroperoxyalkyl radicals—a class of reactive molecules denoted as “QOOH”—that are key in the chain of reactions that controls the early stages of combustion. This breakthrough has generated data on QOOH reaction rates and outcomes that will improve the fidelity of models used by engine manufacturers to create […]

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 […]
