The Techno-Economics of Hydrogen Compression and Pipelines
Thursday, March 10, 2022
Moderator: Dr. David Layzell, University of Calgary / The Transition Accelerator Speaker: Adnan Khan, The Transition Accelerator
In this webinar, we will walk you through two technical briefs, The Techno-economics of Hydrogen Pipelines and The Techno-Economics of Hydrogen Compression. Participants will gain insight into how to carry out techno-economic analyses for pure hydrogen pipelines, including their sizing, operations and cost-estimating, and how to assess the techno-economic feasibility of projects to produce, use and export low-carbon hydrogen. A Q&A session follows.
The Port of Los Angeles, in conjunction with Kenworth Truck Company, Toyota, Shell, and others , recently demonstrated a collaborative zero-emission goods movement project focused on the use of hydrogen fuel cells in heavy-duty trucks for port service. The project exhibited supply chain transport from “Shore to Store” utilizing zero-emission advanced technology. The Shore to Store project is funded with a $41,122,260 grant from the California Air Resources Board and an additional $41,426,612 in matching contributions from project partners. The presentation will discuss the project results and showcase the potential of hydrogen as a zero-emissions fuel platform for heavy-duty goods movement.
This presentation will begin with a high level assessment of the net-zero solutions for Canada’s transportation sector, with a focus on the role that hydrogen could play. A case study will be presented for the transition to net-zero of Alberta’s heavy duty road freight sector.
It’s been almost a year since the Transition Accelerator released Pat Hufnagel-Smith’s report, Assessing the Workforce Required to Advance Canada’s Hydrogen Economy. This webinar take a closer look at the work done since then to ensure that the workforce to enable the region’s future hydrogen economy will be available as it’s needed.
This webinar focuses on using hydrogen-based power trains for heavy-duty Class 8 long-haul freight routes pulling van trailers, including a range of fuel cell battery electric types and internal combustion engines (ICE) based on the diesel cycle.
