  13. National support mechanisms for fuel cells National support mechanisms for fuel cells - some incentives for clean vehicles Austria: €500 *, possible grant up to 600.000 over 10 yrs Belgium: €8990 *, maximum grants for renewable -25,5% of investment Cyprus: €700* Denmark: France: € 5000*, or not more than 20% Germany: Up to 40% investment costs Greece: no taxation Hungary: preferential interest rate, capital grants for renewable and energy efficiency Ireland: grant support €5000 Luxembourg: 3% interest on 50-60% loans Netherlands: reduction from taxable profit max €107 million per year of investment , cheaper loans 1-2% lower than prevailing rate (max 10 year duration) Spain: (regional) grant 22-40% eligible costs, renewable 30-50% Sweden: tax reduction of 0.5 Euro/Mwh UK: Demo projects may be funded by government, other efficient technologies may have 100% capital allowances in 2st year * Tax reduction

  14. HyFACTS • Identification, Preparation and Dissemination of Hydrogen Safety Facts to Regulators and Public Safety Officials • Aims to Develop and disseminate contemporary training material for regulators and public safety experts on safe and environmentally friendly use of hydrogen • Fuel cell and hydrogen (FCH) installations and mobile applications Public areas Companies Universities Research centers Fairgrounds Harbor sites

  15. HyFACTS Project Importance: • Current knowledge gap on hydrogen safety environmental issues • Building regulations, local regulations, public safety and permission of technical installations or earlier in project development • Need to inform decision making institutions • Need for more effective approval procedures • Permission problems of technology in realised projects and the regulations, codes and standards (RCS) currently in effect. EHA’s Role: • Identification and engagement of regulatory and public safety officials • Collection of current practices and training procedures in EU • Definition of national authorization procedures for hydrogen installations in EU Roundtable Capetown May 3, 2012

  16. HyFACTS Project Survey • 65.2% of interviewees engineering or consulting • 26.1% Regulatory authority (health and safety executive, building control, land use, local authority, etc.) • 55.6% deal with Hydrogen production unit • 55.6% Hydrogen passenger vehicle refueling station • 86.4% dealt with Fire Hazards • University most popular institution for training Most important topical areas: • Hazards associated with the use of hydrogen • Hydrogen detection and sensors • Regulations, codes and standards relevant to hydrogen safety • Risk analysis Link to Survey:
