IEA HIA Executive Summary (Mandarin Version)
IEA HIA Executive Summary

Task 31/Task 31 White Paper

Information and knowledge dissemination is a key aspect of the hydrogen safety work conducted under Task 31 and its predecessor, Task 19, and case studies, technical reports and presentations/publications have often resulted from the collaborative efforts.  The work has positively impacted the objectives of national programs and illustrates how technology information and knowledge exchange among participating hydrogen safety experts has served the objectives intended by the IEA HIA.  This white paper provides specific examples of the value created by these collaborations.

IEA Hydrogen Implementing Agreement
Task 26: Advanced Materials for Waterphotolysis

Final Report
Operating Agent: Dr. Eric L. Miller

Photoelectrochemical (PEC) hydrogen production, using sunlight to directly split water, is one of the paramount enabling technologies for a future where hydrogen is widely deployed as an energy carrier.  The “traditional” semiconductor-based PEC material systems studied to date, in particular the simple metal oxides such as TiO2, WO3 and Fe2O3, however, have been
unable to meet all the performance, durability and cost requirements for practical hydrogen production. Technology-enabling advances have been needed in the development of new and improved materials systems.

The major products from this task, which are expected to benefit the PEC research community at large, have included: “White Papers” on PEC focus materials which document the current understanding of the challenges
and potential of each materials class, and include the most up-to-date references for each; a technoeconomic analysis report on PEC hydrogen production projecting technical feasibility of different feasible approaches; a published document on standard methods in the characterization and reporting of PEC materials; and two seminal books on PEC hydrogen production comprised of chapter contributions from the international experts in this field.
These Task 26 products are documented in this report.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) Hydrogen Implementing Agreement (HIA) is
pleased to announce the release of its Task 24 Final Report: Wind Energy & Hydrogen
Integration. The main purpose of Task 24 was to provide an overview of technologies that
have direct influence on development and implementation of systems integrating wind
energy with hydrogen production. The Final Report concludes that the wind/hydrogen
alternative appears to be an attractive storage option for overcoming a major drawback,
the intermittent availability of wind energy, which affects both stand-alone and gridconnected
applications.

The Final Report was presented for approval at the 68th IEA HIA Executive Committee
Meeting March 13-14, 2013 in Paris, France.

  • Wind power evolution in European countries and Japan
  • The impact of high wind energy penetration on power systems
  • Electricity storage systems
  • Technologies: wind; electrolysis; system integration; hydrogen compression and storage;
    hydrogen to electricity conversion options
  • Categorization of Wind-Hydrogen systems
  • Software simulation tools
  • Evaluation of Wind-Hydrogen System Projects
  • Lessons Learned and Community Perspectives

The International Energy Agency (IEA) Hydrogen Implementing Agreement (HIA) is
pleased to announce the release of its Task 23 Final Report: Small-scale Reformers for Onsite
Hydrogen Supply. Task 23’s main objective was to provide a basis for harmonization
of technology for on-site hydrogen production from hydrocarbons and renewables. Four
sub-objectives were outlined to meet this vision:

  • First, a basis for harmonized capacities of on-site reformer units was developed.
  • Second, the issues related to promotion of widespread on-site reformers were identified
    and examined.
  • Third, a global market guide for the use of on-site reformers was created.
  • Fourth, the technological links to renewables were described.


The report was approved for release at the 68th IEA HIA Executive Committee Meeting
March 13-14, 2013 in Paris, France.

The new IEA HIA Task 28, Large-Scale Hydrogen Delivery Infrastructure, received final approval
Task 28 will focus on the transport and distribution of large scale hydrogen delivery infrastructure while including production and end-use issues as well. The three year effort comprises three subtasks: 1) definition of large-scale, views and order of magnitudes the framework for discussion and roll-out; 2) comparison of hydrogen refueling station concepts (both central and on-site production); and 3) analysis of hydrogen delivery routes (truck and pipeline). Industry participation is viewed as essential to the task. In addition, considerable cooperation with other IEA HIA tasks is foreseen. Year one Task 28 activities will map and describe; year two activities will analyse and compare; and year three activities will conclude and report. Dr. Marcel Weeda of the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands will be the Task 28 Operating Agent with support from NL Agency.
