Hydrogen Fuel Product Specification Part 3: Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell applications for stationary applications





This international standard specifies the quantity characteristics of hydrogen fuel in order to assure uniformity of the hydrogen product for utilization in stationary proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell power systems.

This standard covers stationary PEM fuel cell power systems that are connected and fixed in place, and is applicable to:

  • Distributed power generation,
  • Back-up power generation,
  • Remote power generation,
  • Power generation for telecom applications, and
  • Cogeneration for residential and commercial applications.

This standard applies when the supplier and the system manufacturer agree on the hydrogen specification as described herein.  This standard does not apply in micro, portable and motive applications.
