The Island Hydrogen Project: Electrolytic Generated Hydrogen for Automotive and Maritime Applications
In 2014, the transport sector was responsible for 23% of total greenhouse gas emissions in the European Union (EU). During the same year, 13% of that sector’s emissions came from the maritime segment, a number that is expected to rise during the coming years. The transport sector’s share of renewable energy in 2014 was just 5.9%, mostly comprising biodiesel and bioethanol fuel.Electrification is a solution that will help reduce the transport sector’s reliance on hydrocarbonbased fuels. This article describes the Island Hydrogen project, which introduced and tested new solutions to produce and use hydrogen as a fuel for vehicles and vessels.
