The project ‘Fuel Cell Hybrid Power Pack for Rail Applications’ was an innovation action in Horizon 2020, the most significant research programme in the European Union. Aimed at reducing the production costs of fuel cell systems in transport applications while increasing their service life to levels that can compete with conventional technologies, the programme has awarded the project entitled FCH2Rail, under Grant Agreement No. 101006633 ([1]). FCH2Rail is a project focused on developing, building, testing, demonstrating and homologating a scalable, modular and multi-purpose Fuel Cell Hybrid PowerPack (FCHPP) applicable for different rail applications (multiple units, mainline locomotives and shunting locomotives). It is also suitable for retrofitting existing electric and diesel trains, to reach TRL7. The purpose of Deliverable D1.1 is to analyse and gather requirements on hydrogen trains from operational and infrastructural parameters. This is done within two steps. First a high-level line analysis is performed to collect infrastructural and operational characteristics for various countries in the European Union. In the second steps, representative use-cases are identified and simulated to evaluate detailed requirements on the FCHPP. The first part of the document (section 1) defines requirements of interests. The defined requirements are described. A methodology is described to gather and evaluate these requirements from various data sources. Section 2 describes and characterises then the data used such as timetables, digital elevation models and Open Street Map. Section 3 states the rolling stock of the investigating countries Spain, Portugal, Germany and Slovakia. The vehicles, their fleet sizes and ages are shown and categorised by their usages. Section 4 characterises all railway services suited for the operation of hydrogen (bi-mode) trains (i.e. line-based requirements) in the investigating countries on a higher level. For each service, the requirements defined in section 1 are visualised and put in respective to each other and to vehicle usages. The investigated countries are compared with each other. Section 5 describes a detailed investigation of various use-cases. A use-case is the specific operation of a vehicle on a certain line over a business day. A mechanical energy simulation is performed for each use-case. Simulation results are finally compared. In section 6 the findings of this study and achievable market potentials for generic FC trains are discussed.
