In order for hydrogen to become a competitive energy carrier, experience and operating data need to be collected and disseminated through demonstration projects. A growing number of integrated hydrogen energy demonstrations are being carried out around the world. The IEA Hydrogen Program has undertaken the task of working with the demonstration project leaders to develop a collection of comprehensive reports on these various demonstrations and to make this information available to the hydrogen community. Each hydrogen-based energy systems was critically evaluated and compared, with system performance measurement as the central focus. The reports include the project goals, a description of the main components, a representative set of experimental results, technical challenges, permitting issues, safety and public interactions.
