Hydrogen Analysis Resource Center

The Hydrogen Analysis Resource Center provides well-documented, reliable data to be used for hydrogen-related analytical activities. These data can serve as the basis for calculations, modeling, and other analytical activities. Data can be accessed from databases housed in the site itself as well as through links to important websites such as those maintained by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Programs, other U.S. Government Agencies, and non-government websites. The search feature of the site allows the user to seamlessly search available data, independent of whether the data are from internal or external sources. The website also provides guidelines and a set of assumptions for use in Hydrogen Program analysis projects (these assumptions will be updated annually). In addition, the website contains several calculator tools that do useful conversions and other simple calculations relevant to hydrogen and fuel cells and links to websites housing more sophisticated analysis tools such as the H2A website, the GREET website, and others.
