Are hydrogen vehicles the real answer?

The question here is perhaps not ‘is hydrogen as a fuel the right option’, but ‘should we be wasting it on small vehicles’?

Autotrader quotes that hydrogen is ‘pleasing engineering simplicity about hydrogen fuel cells’, and these ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) produce water vaopour from the exhaust meaning zero exhaust pipe emissions. But as a route to decarbonisingng our planet, should be focusing on using hydrogen for the larger ‘problems’?

“We will certainly need hydrogen to get us to net zero, but it seems fairly unlike to be in cars” says Graeme Cooper, Head Future Markets at National Grid. 

“Firstly, efficiency. To travel a mile in a battery car would need up to 6 times the amount of electricity for the same mile in a hydrogen car.

Secondly, we need hydrogen for things that are difficult to electrify – such as very heavy trucks and construction plants.

97% of commercial hydrogen is made from the petrochemical sector, so isn’t clean. Making it clean means you need to use an electrolyser and power it from clean energy, which also means green hydrogen isn’t cheap.”
