Hydrogen, What's Next?

Upcoming Workshops

NIST WMD is planning two 2 1/2-day workshops on "Commercial Hydrogen Measurement Standards" at its Gaithersburg, Maryland campus. The workshops are made possible through funding from the American Competitiveness Initiative. The funding will also cover the costs for a limited number of weights and measures officials to participate in the workshops.

The workshops will familiarize weights and measures officials, who are responsible for field inspection and test of motor-fuel dispensers, with the latest developments in the operation, performance, and safety of hydrogen refueling equipment and related transportation technologies.

Read more about the workshops in the W&M Quarterly Newsletter.

New Hydrogen Web Page

NIST WMD has launched a new web page titled "Developing Commercial Hydrogen Measurement Standards." The web page will be the U.S. weights and measures and hydrogen communities' source for the latest information and status of ongoing work to develop uniform and appropriate legal metrology standards for commercial hydrogen measurements.
