Modelling Prospects for Hydrogen-Powered Transportation Until 2100

In this paper, the authors examine the economic viability of hydrogen transportation in several different tax and carbon stabilization policy scenarios. A computable general equilibrium model of the world economy is used in the analysis. Different combinations of hydrogen fuel price and vehicle mark-ups are used as inputs for each scenario for exploring what technological improvements in terms of cost reductions would be nece4ssary for the technology to penetrate the market. In addition, the effect of introducing reduced-carbon fuel substitutes, like ethanol-blend fuels, on the economic viability of hydrogen transportation is also examined.
