New report positive on promise for hydrogen applications in road transport

Thu 23 December 2004 View all news

A new report prepared for the Government concludes that the use of hydrogen in transport could help to meet key national goals.

"A Strategic Framework for Hydrogen Energy in the UK" by E4Tech, elementenergy and Eoin Lees Energy aimed to provide a framework for the development of a hydrogen economy to 2030 and to inform both long and short-term UK activities.

As part of the process, researchers interviewed government policy makers and concluded that key policy goals will be competitive CO2 reductions and improved upstream energy security.

The report concludes that hydrogen energy could provide competitive CO2 reductions in road vehicles using fuel cells through a number of energy pathways: renewable energy, nuclear energy, natural gas with carbon capture and storage (CCS), coal with CCS, biomass with optional CCS and other novel hydrogen production technologies.
