The development of two hydrogen production and distribution scenarios in Worcester, Massachusetts was analyzed. These scenarios, one centralized and one decentralized were analyzed with two different approaches. The first was an analysis of a fully saturated static case where every vehicle in Worcester was hydrogen powered. The second was a dynamic growth model that detailed the transition from gasoline powered vehicles to hydrogen powered vehicles. The scenarios were compared based on the information derived from both analysis approaches.
