The H2@Ports Workshop on 10-12 September 2019 in San Francisco, CA aims to explore opportunities for cooperation and collaboration on hydrogen technology for maritime and port applications. The workshop is hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy Fuel Cell Technologies Office and the U.S. Maritime Administration, and in collaboration with the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking. The workshop aligns with IPHE’s (International Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuels Cells in the Economy) goals and contributes to the objectives of Mission Innovation’s Renewable and Clean Hydrogen Challenge.
The event will be held in the Marines’ Memorial Club and Hotel in downtown San Francisco, CA in the U.S.A.
Hydrogen use in maritime operations has the potential to enable economies-of-scale for fuel cell technology deployments. The objectives of this workshop are to:
- Assess the state of the art for maritime applications specifically using hydrogen and fuel cells
- Discuss operational requirements and lessons learned on early fuel cell maritime projects
- Understand current technology gaps and identify collaborative R&D opportunities
- Identify regulatory challenges and barriers related to safety, codes and standards
There will also be an opportunity to tour one of the first commercial fuel cell ferries in the world on September 12.
