Thanks to a limited fueling infrastructure and other factors, hydrogen cars are still few and far between. But the Hydrogen Council has an optimistic view for the long-term, saying there could be around 10 to 15 million hydrogen-powered cars and 500,000 trucks by 2030. By 2050, that number could grow to 400 million hydrogen cars and 15 to 20 million trucks. The Hydrogen Council consists of 18 core members from multiple industries. Audi, BMW, Daimler, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, and Toyota are among the automakers participating in the initiative, joining other companies such as specialty gas supplier Air Liquide and Royal Dutch Shell. The Council created a study that quantifies hydrogen’s role in the energy sector of the future. Across multiple industries, not just transportation, hydrogen has the potential to account for almost one-fifth of total final energy consumed by 2050, the study found. At this level, hydrogen could contribute 20 percent toward global climate targets. In the Paris Agreement, world leaders agreed to limit global temperature increases to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The study suggests that EVs can’t do it all. To achieve the climate goals, the study says there would need to be 80 million zero-emission and 80 million… Read full this story
