Webinar August 11: Analysis Using Fuel Cell MHE for Shaving Peak Building Energy

August 5, 2015

The Energy Department's Fuel Cell Technologies Office will present a live webinar entitled "Analysis Using Fuel Cell Material Handling Equipment (MHE) for Shaving Peak Building Energy" on Tuesday, August 11, from 10 to 11 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time. This webinar, presented by Michael Penev of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, will explore the synergy between a facility's use of hydrogen fuel cell forklifts and its reduction of electric grid time of use energy charges.

Electric fuel cell forklifts use electricity generated from hydrogen fuel and can be used for either mobility or to offset grid charges associated with peak facility demands. The analyzed scenarios will focus on how different buildings can benefit from offsetting their peak energy demands by connecting fuel cells to their internal power systems. The webinar includes a techno-economic analysis as well as competitive analysis for the alternative peak-shaving apparatus.
