Abstract
Hydrogen and the “Hydrogen Economy” are increasingly becoming buzzwords in discussions regarding future U.S. energy scenarios. Hydrogen energy offers a multitude of economic and environmental advantages over the current world energy structure. Despite this attention, there have been very few geographical studies of a possible transition to a hydrogen system. Even these studies have been limited in scope to demand-side analyses. This thesis attempts to rectify this situation by broadening the scope of geographical studies of hydrogen through the analysis of supply-side scenario. This study is a site selection model for a biomass hydrogen facility in the Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana. In this analysis, several existing biomass production facilities in Louisiana were analyzed against existing market demand locations throughout the Gulf Coast region. Though none of these locations proved profitable in this analysis, this model will hopefully serve as a basis for future supply-side hydrogen studies, as well as, provide impetus toward further discussion of renewable hydrogen energy.
