Types of hydrogen use in transportation and hydrogen refuelling stations
AbstractHydrogen has immense potential as an energy vector. Once produced and stored the energy contained can be exploited in energy generation. This exploitation is thought to be able to rival more traditional methods of energy generation such as coal and gas powered power stations. Typically, hydrogen is expected to be deployed in fuel cells; however, there exist options in combusting the hydrogen to release the stored energy. Early markets and economic demand will force the first steps of hydrogen technology. At present road vehicles are seen as the technology of choice, with early adopters keen to take up this technology as the authors move forward to a low carbon future. Parallel to this is the need to have such an infrastructure to support deployment. In this article, they look at a few of the key areas where hydrogen is in transportation and discuss the infrastructure that is required to support the technology.
