Title
(EN) EXPANDABLE HYDROGEN FUELING STATION AND METHOD OF SUPPLYING HYDROGEN THEREIN
(FR) STATION DE RAVITAILLEMENT EN HYDROGÈNE ÉVOLUTIVE ET PROCÉDÉ DE RAVITAILLEMENT EN HYDROGÈNE
Abstract
(EN)
A staged plan for constructing hydrogen supply stations is disclosed. The staged plan reduces the financial risk and enables the hydrogen supply stations to start operational quickly. The staged plan explores the technical flexibility permitting the staged construction of hydrogen stations, thus allowing incremental funding for initiating a functional station at small capacity with limited services and reaching a full capacity and full function as the industry matures in the future. The staged plan lowers the initial cost for stations and provides flexibility to schedule the expansion toward a full operation.

Projet échelonné de construction de stations de ravitaillement en hydrogène. Le projet échelonné permet de réduire le risque financier et de démarrer rapidement l'exploitation des stations de ravitaillement en hydrogène. Le projet échelonné offre une flexibilité technique permettant la construction échelonnée de stations de ravitaillement en hydrogène et donc un financement par paliers visant à lancer une station fonctionnelle de faible capacité offrant des services limités puis à atteindre la capacité maximale et à offrir une gamme de services complets au fur et à mesure de l'essor du secteur. Le projet échelonné permet de réduire l'investissement initial consenti pour la construction des stations et offre une grande marge de manœuvre quant à l'évolution vers une exploitation maximale.
