Hydrogen Transitions in a Greenhouse Gas Constrained World

SEI has conducted one of the first ever quantitative assessments of alternative hydrogen futures that attempts to link vehicle and infrastructure technology, environmental, regulatory, and economic systems into an integrated framework.

SEI has conducted one of the first ever quantitative assessments of alternative hydrogen futures that attempts to link vehicle and infrastructure technology, environmental, regulatory, and economic systems into an integrated framework.

We quantified the greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction benefits of a transition to a hydrogen economy in four greater metropolitan areas of the US (Boston, Denver, Houston, and Seattle).

The magnitude of the GHG reduction benefits depends upon a number of factors including demographic and spatial characteristics, technology cost and performance of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, regulatory contexts, timing and extent of transition pathways, technologies used for producing hydrogen, and features of the hydrogen distribution infrastructure.
