Analysis of a Potential Hydrogen Refuelling Network Using Geographic Information Systems: A Case Study of the Kitchener Census Metropolitan Area
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis provides macro-, meso- and micro-level analyses of a potential hydrogen refuelling network with a case study for the Kitchener census metropolitan area in Canada. It provides recommendations on the appropriate number of stations required to meet estimated demand for hydrogen refuelling. Furthermore, scenarios are produced using geographic information systems (GIS) to show possible networks. Micro-level analysis brings in the planning aspect of hydrogen specific zoning codes and the possible impacts of citizen and stakeholder resistances to hydrogen.
