Hydrogen Case Studies Workshop Agenda
June 28, 2005 UC Davis, Buehler Alumni Center
Welcome and Workshop Overview
- Joan Ogden, UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies, Hydrogen Case Studies: Welcome
- Anthony Eggert, UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies
Session 1: National, Multinational, and International Hydrogen Planning
This session focused on large national and multinational plans, such as the European Hydrogen Energy Roadmap, that aim to develop the requisite infrastructure for transitioning to a hydrogen-based transportation system. The presentations outline the drivers, goals, timelines, and current efforts of these plans, as well as potential obstacles to their implementation.
- Margaret Singh, Argonne National Laboratory, Regional Hydrogen Demand: Production and Cost Estimates
- Philippe Mulard, TOTAL, European HyWays and Platform Projects
- Tabitha Takeda, Natural Resources Canada, Canadian Hydrogen Infrastructure Planning
Session 2: Early Adopter Perspectives on Infrastructure Design and Strategic Planning
This session highlighted smaller national and regional hydrogen infrastructure plans in which there are plans to build infrastructure in the near future. The presentations outlined drivers, goals, timelines, and current planning efforts, but with a specific focus on the implications of building infrastructure in the short-term and the results the projects hope to achieve by being early adopters.
- Shannon Baxter-Clemmons, California EPA, The California Hydrogen Highway Network
- Michael Nicholas, UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies, Station Siting for the CA Hydrogen Highway Network
- Obadiah Bartholomy, UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies, Hydrogen Production from Wind in California
- Thorsteinn Sigfusson, Icelandic New Energy, Five Years of Action in the Icelandic Hydrogen Movement

Session 3: Small-scale Case Studies of Hydrogen Infrastructure
This session focused on city- and station-level case studies of hydrogen infrastructure. The topics ranged from the design and implementation of individual fueling stations to infrastructure design for large metropolitan areas. The presentations highlighted the planning tools that were used and lessons learned during the process.
- Rick Zalesky, Chevron Technology Ventures, The Road to Hydrogen - Challenges Ahead in Technology and Manufacturing
- Jonathan Weinert, UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies, Hydrogen Infrastructure in Shanghai
- David Joffe, Imperial College London, London's Buses - An Early Route to Hydrogen Infrastructure?
Panel Session: Lessons Learned from Current Activities and Insights for Future Planning
This panel discussion included many of the speakers from the previous day as well as representatives from energy and auto companies who discussed the lessons learned from past and current experiences in designing and implementing hydrogen infrastructure and vehicles. The goal was to identify broadly applicable lessons that can be used to guide future infrastructure and strategic planning.
Panel participants: Daniel Sperling (UC Davis), Uli Buenger (Ludwig-Bölkow-Systemtechnik), David Joffe (Imperial College), Rick Zalesky (Chevron), and Giorgio Zoia (BP).
Poster Session: Graduate Researchers present their research
Participants were provided the opportunity to directly interact with the Hydrogen Pathways Program researchers during the poster session. Each researcher were available to discuss feedback and questions concerning their research with workshop participants on a one-on-one and small group basis.

Session 4: Regional Analytic Case Studies of Hydrogen Infrastructure
This session focused on analytic methods for optimizing hydrogen infrastructure design in various regions throughout the world. The presentations highlighted the methods and tools that have been developed to design the cost of potential infrastructure in regions in the U.S. and Europe.
- Giorgio Zoia, BP America, A Common Sense Approach to Infrastructure Modeling
- Nils Johnson, UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies, Designing Hydrogen Infrastructure in Ohio Using GIS
- Uli Buenger (Ludwig-Bölkow-Systemtechnik), The Path to a Hydrogen Refueling Infrastructure in Europe - HyNet and HyWays
Panel Session: Regional and International Characteristics of Infrastructure Planning
This panel discussion included many of the speakers as well as representatives of many countries and regions, such as China, Iceland, United States, Europe, and South America. The panelists discussed the differences in hydrogen infrastructure planning for specific regions and countries, including those resulting from feedstock availability, economic and political conditions, and the importance of different drivers.
Panel participants: Joan Ogden (UC Davis), Philippe Mulard (TOTAL), B.M. Bansal (Indian Oil Corporation), Thorsteinn Sigfusson (Icelandic New Energy), Margaret Singh (Argonne National Laboratory), and Tabitha Takeda (Natural Resources Canada).
