Transitions to alternative transportation technologies : a by National Research Council, Division on Engineering and

By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Board on Energy and Environmental Systems, Committee on Assessment of Resource Needs for Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Technologies

Hydrogen gasoline mobilephone automobiles (HFCVs) may alleviate the nation’s dependence on oil and decrease U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gasoline. Industry-and government-sponsored learn courses have made very awesome technical development during the last numerous years, and several other businesses are at present introducing pre-commercial autos and hydrogen fueling stations in constrained markets.

However, to accomplish extensive hydrogen automobile penetration, extra technological advances are required for advertisement viability, and motor vehicle producer and hydrogen provider actions has to be coordinated. specifically, expenses needs to be diminished, new automobile production applied sciences commercialized, and enough provides of hydrogen produced and made on hand to motorists. those efforts would require huge assets, in particular federal and personal quarter investment.

This ebook estimates the assets that might be had to carry HFCVs to the purpose of aggressive self-sustainability available on the market. It additionally estimates the impression on oil intake and carbon dioxide emissions as HFCVs turn into a wide fraction of the light-duty automobile fleet.
