Press release date: July 2, 2007

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) was recently awarded a new contract to enhance and expand its Hydrogen Codes and Standards Portal (hcsp.ansi.org), a web-based hydrogen data center developed under an initial contract from the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The portal provides a single source for information about the various codes, standards, and regulations that apply to the use of hydrogen as fuel.

The portal supports NREL's Hydrogen, Fuel Cells, and Infrastructure Technologies Program, through which the laboratory works to accelerate the development and adoption of advanced hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. The most abundant element in the universe, hydrogen as an alternative fuel has the potential to reduce dependence on foreign oil, improve air quality, and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Enhancements to the portal, including a new standards classification structure, will improve overall usability and augment search and browse operations. ANSI will also update the site's standards and documents to reflect the current needs of the hydrogen community, building code and fire safety officials, product designers, as well as local and state government entities involved in hydrogen and fuel cell technology projects in the United States. An additional key component of the redesign will increase the delivery of hydrogen-related news feeds on the portal.

"We are very pleased that the Institute will continue to offer its expertise in support of the nation's energy initiatives," said Bob Feghali, ANSI vice president and chief information officer. "The Institute has a long and successful track record in delivering responsive solutions to national priorities. A dynamic and flexible site, the hydrogen codes and standards portal stands ready for future enhancements as necessary."

The new contract was issued by Regulatory Logic LLC, under a subcontract from DoE. The redesign is scheduled to launch in late 2007.
