Hydrogen as a fuel

Analysis of using hydrogen fuel for fuel cell electric vehicles compared to diesel fuel for internal combustion engines.

Hydrogen fuel production does not improve Carbon savings and there is no available implementation strategy for hydrogen freight vehicles.

Large-scale Carbon Capture and Storage infrastructure needed to give any future CO2e benefits.

% fuel saving

Using low CO2 processes, hydrogen vehicle has no reduction in fuel consumption.

% CO2e Saving

No Carbon Savings available at this time.

Cost of implementation

Upfront cost for a hydrogen vehicle alone, but associated infrastructure costs must also be considered. Lifetime for a hydrogen vehicle is unknown.

Implementation strategy

Significant developments are required for reducing CO2 and increasing fuel savings using hydrogen fuel.
