Welcome to the interactive Installation Permitting Guidance for small stationary hydrogen and fuel cell systemsThis website is the result of the EU FP6 project HYPER. It brings you the main outcome of the project: the Installation Permitting Guidance (IPG) for small stationary hydrogen and fuel cell systems in an interactive format. This allows you to go easily through the guide. A PDF format of the IPG can be downloaded as well.
This document was created in response to the growing need for guidance to facilitate small hydrogen and fuel cell stationary installations in Europe. This document is not a standard, but is a compendium of useful information for a variety of users with a role in installing these systems. The main target groups are installers, manufacturers and regulators. Design engineers, architects and operators/maintenance workers will also find the guide useful.
The guide consists of several chapters including an introduction and scope, an introduction to fuel cell systems and their associated hazards, general and higher level requirements, system specific and siting considerations and a permitting route for industrial and domestic installations. These chapters can be found on the left. More details of the different sections in these chapters can be obtained by clicking through the guide.
We hope that this interactive website improves you the missing tools in your installation permitting process. Your own experiences and suggestions can be shared through the contact form.
All the best,
the HYPER consortium
