Hydrogen could become a significant fuel in the future especially within the transportation sector. Alkaline electrolysers supplied with power from renewable energy sources could be utilised to provide carbon free hydrogen for future hydrogen filling stations supplying Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles (HFCV), or Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs) modified to burn hydrogen. However, there is a need to develop and use appropriate strategies such that the technology delivers greater economic and environmental benefits.
