Project 5: Refueling Station Size Analysis

Filed under:
The Station Size Analysis is a project that looks into refueling station distribution in the existing gasoline infrastructure and translates the results into hydrogen station needs.

Refueling Station Size Analysis

This project looks into the distribution of station sizes within early networks of hydrogen stations serving urban or rural areas. Through examining survey data on existing gasoline station networks in cities, we can characterize station sizes and spatial distributions. We can then identify correlations between gasoline station network characteristics and urban area demographics and simulate growth and structure of early hydrogen station networks through a cluster analysis of existing gasoline station networks.
