TIA - TIF WHITE PAPER 003
A Fuel Cell Guide: REGULATIONS, CODES, AND STANDARDS FOR THE DEPLOYMENT OF STATIONARY FUEL CELLS
|Publication Date:||1 January 2018|
The purpose of this document is to support the deployment of fuel cells by identifying regulatory require- ments and providing information on fuel supplies, permitting, and other procedures that would assist a project developer. The guide may also be helpful to other parties involved in project deployment, such as:
- Equipment manufacturers
- Fuel suppliers
- Code officials
- Municipal planners
- Emergency responders.
This document is the first in a set of two. The second document is a users guide for deployment of station- ary fuel cells and will be focused more on guidance for operating stationary fuel cells, as opposed to codes and standards compliance.
This document covers the following topics:
- Basic systems structure
- Overview of codes and standards and generally applicable codes and standards
- Fuel supply considerations
- Permitting processes, including a detailed overview of codes and standards
- Reserved sections for such topics as an Emergency Response Plan and Standards Permits
The TIA Fuel Cell Focus Group, which authored this document, had extensive discussions about the user's needs and how they could best be addressed. These discussions led to the creation of a lengthy section on fuel supply considerations.
The intent is that this will be a living document and that as deployment progresses, these sections will pro- vide the necessary information.
