Objective

Roads2HyCOM is a project to co-ordinate, assess and monitor research in the field of Hydrogen for stationary and transport power. Its outputs will support planning of future Hydrogen initiatives under FP7 and beyond (known as HyCom), which aim to develop hydrogen communities and stimulate growth in hydrogen technology markets. The project uses quantitative techniques to assess European and global technology, Hydrogen infrastructures, and the needs of generic community types which define thresholds required for successful Hydrogen Community application; considering technical, commercial, safety and socio-economic aspects of technology. In parallel, potential Hydrogen Community stakeholders will be engaged to support HyCom planning. This project will cover all aspects - the production of hydrogen, distribution, storage and conversion to useable energy by the end-user, in stationary and transport applications; and associated safety, security, regulatory and socio-economic issues. The project uses the expertise of independent research and technology organisations together with academia and key industrial stakeholders to conduct this assessment and provide strong links into many existing projects and initiatives. It will use the existing Technology Platform (Deployment Strategy & Strategic Research Agenda) and similar strategic and technical material as foundation-stones. Reference Groups will be used to engage a wide spectrum of stakeholders from industry and society. The project will deliver web-based calendars of research milestones and maps of research activity for access by the public and research community; together with reports which will assist the Commission in planning future research to support HyCom; and training manuals and dissemination directed at the wider community of interested stakeholders and communities.
