As the number of hybrid vehicles on the road increases, there is an imminent need for an infrastructural support to make these new acquisitions practicable. This project details the infrastructural design using fuel cell energy from the Technology Park of Kettering University for setting up 10 pilot recharging outlets at the parking lot for the experimental fleet all year round. The Technology Park houses a hydrogen refueling station for a fleet of five buses, fuel cell and solar energy laboratories and various incubators for various alternative energy companies. The current resources at the Center include a 2 kW high temperature HT-PEM produced by GEI, LLC and a GREENLIGHT Test station. The use of solar energy-electrolyzer and fuel cell during the day is also considered for a public parking lot with a capacity of 30 vehicles. The applicable codes and standards regarding such installations are reviewed.
