Abstract: The use of hydrogen produced from renewable energy sources is often reported as an attractive strategy to address the issue of urban environmental sustainability in automotive sector, and a potential alternative to fossil fuel-fed vehicles. The project ‘Filiera Idrogeno’ (Hydrogen Chain) has investigated the potential realisation of hydrogen production chains from renewables and its use as automotive fuel in Tuscany Region (Italy). In this context, life cycle assessment was used for evaluating the environmental sustainability of such chains, applied to a fleet of hydrogen vehicles for urban commercial delivery.
