Data and Tools
NREL offers energy analysis tools, models, and other resources for researchers, developers, investors, and others interested in the viability, analysis, and development of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies and systems.
Modeling tool that estimates vehicle technology improvement impacts on future U.S. light-duty vehicle sales, energy use, and emissions.
Collection of tools—calculators, interactive maps, and data searches—that can help fleets, fuel providers, and other transportation decision-makers reduce petroleum use.
Simulation tool that provides fuel economy, performance, battery life, and cost calculations for different vehicle design and usage scenarios.
Financial modeling tool for analyzing high-temperature, fuel cell-based tri-generation systems.
Clearinghouse of medium- and heavy-duty commercial fleet transportation data for optimizing the design of advanced vehicle technologies or for selecting a technology to invest in.
Interactive material selector tool to help fuel cell developers and material suppliers explore the results of fuel cell system contaminants studies.
Hydrogen production models used for analyzing the economics of distributed and centralized hydrogen production from various energy resources, including renewables, coal, natural gas, and biomass.
Web-based GIS tool that provides access to hydrogen demand, resource, infrastructure, cost, production, and distribution data.
Available as an interactive online tool or a downloadable Excel spreadsheet, this modeling tool provides a quick and convenient in-depth financial analysis for hydrogen fueling stations.
Hydrogen storage models developed as part of the Hydrogen Storage Engineering Center of Excellence, which addresses the engineering challenges associated with developing lower-pressure, materials-based, hydrogen storage systems for hydrogen fuel cell and internal combustion engine light-duty vehicles.
Off-network data center used for the secure management, storage, and processing of proprietary data from industry.
Knowledge-sharing wiki that provides access to energy-related information, data, and applications.
Infrastructure analysis model used for determining optimal production and delivery scenarios for hydrogen, given resource availability and technology cost.
Repository of detailed travel data—including demographic information and second-by-second speed profiles—from various surveys and studies. The TSDC makes these data available to support research projects while protecting individual participant privacy.
