Vehicle Refuelling Stations Testing Standard



Accurate quantification of hydrogen dispensed at refuelling stations is crucial for uptake of light duty hydrogen fuelled vehicles.

Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) produce zero emissions at the exhaust and therefore would play a key role in reaching the net-zero emission targets of the EU and the UK. One of the main barriers to the uptake of FCEVs is the lack of an adequate refuelling infrastructure.

The existing and future hydrogen refuelling stations will require a proper metrological approach to ensure customers that they receive the amount of fuel they paid for. Therefore, the same metrological approach as for diesel and petrol stations should be in place.

However, measuring the amount of hydrogen dispensed into the vehicle tanks is far more complex than measuring liquid fuels. Several measurement institutes across Europe, the US and far East have therefore built test standards for verifying the amount of hydrogen dispensed by HRS.

This webinar, presented by Dr. Piotr Traczykowski, demonstrates TÜV SÜD's light duty hydrogen field test standard (HFTS) which is United Kingdom’s first test standard to verify hydrogen dispensers for light duty FCEVs.
