What Will Power the Hydrogen Economy? Present and Future Sources of Hydrogen Energy
Timothy E. Lipman
Institute of Transportation Studies, Working Paper Series from Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Davis
During the last ten to fifteen years advances in fuel cell technology have spurred an enormous wave of interest in hydrogen. This report first examines various methods for producing hydrogen, including discussion of the production potential for the United States. It then discusses and summarizes hydrogen distribution and delivery options, including a study of the environmental pollutant emissions implications and land and water use impacts of different production options. In addition, potential regional hydrogen production strategies around the U.S., and the potential for regional hydrogen production from renewable sources are discussed. The report concludes with a look at policy implications, particularly in light of the hydrogen production option costs and benefits that are reviewed and described in the report.
