Understanding Hydrogen and Fuel Cells

The Texas Hydrogen 101 project has been part of a national effort supported by the U.S. Department of Energy to become better informed about hydrogen.  Toward this end, the Houston Advanced Research Center has been conducting workshops and briefings targeting major Texas metropolitan areas.  In addition, presentations were made at various conferences and events; and educational materials were distributed at related events.

Hydrogen is one of the options often mentioned as a candidate new transportation fuel, and Texas is among the largest hydrogen producer states in the nation.  Hydrogen is also being used in Texas for stationary electric power generation, backup power, and for materials handling equipment, such as fork trucks in warehouse operations.

As Texas moves forward with new energy technology options, we need a basic understanding of hydrogen as an energy option.

 

NOTE: DOE's web-based course on hydrogen safety is an excellent resource for information on hydrogen - basic properties, comparisons with other fuels, fuel cells, hazards, and safety.  It contains videos, supporting documents, and links to essential hydrogen safety information.

Hydrogen 101 Curriculum

H101: Hydrogen Production
Most hydrogen today is made from natural gas, something Texas has a lot of. But Texas also has other resources that might be used.


H101: Distribution and Storage
Most hydrogen in Texas is made and used near refineries, and Texas has an extensive hydrogen pipeline in the Gulf Coast area. How is hydrogen delivered and stored?


H101: Fuel Cells
Fuel cells turn hydrogen into electricity that can be used in fuel cell vehicles and for stationary power.


H101: Benefits
Why would we use hydrogen in Texas?


H101: Safety
How safe is hydrogen?
