Powering future mobility with hydrogen and fuel cells

02 Oct 2019
Today’s transportation sector depends almost entirely on the use of non-renewable fossil fuels and contributes more than 20 percent of the carbon footprint towards global emissions. The development of the hydrogen economy, if using renewable resources, should be a consideration as an alternative fuel source, especially in applications including Buses, Trucks, Rail and Shipping and private transport. We assess the role of hydrogen in enabling a clean energy transition, scaling up zero-emission mobility with hydrogen technology, as well as challenges and opportunities of fuel cell technology and applications in the transport sector.
