Hydrogen transport: overcoming the refuelling roadblock
Hydrogen has an important role to play in decarbonising the transport sector, which accounts for up to 35% of carbon emissions in some countries. But hydrogen can’t fulfil its potential unless the refuelling infrastructure is scaled up.
The need for this infrastructure is clear. While battery technology is suitable for smaller vehicles and buses on lower end duty cycles, hydrogen is widely seen as the most promising decarbonisation option for trucks, operationally more stretched buses, ships, planes and trains. For these modes of transport, batteries’ lower energy density (hence lower range and hauling capabilities) and slow recharging performance are major disadvantages.
