The need for zero emission transport is beyond question, and the drop in air pollution during Covid lockdowns shows us that we can reverse climate change.

Electric and Hydrogen are not the only solutions, but will have a major role to play in decarbonising transportation. Neither electricity or Hydrogen are energy sources, but energy carriers, so in themselves are not ‘the’ solution. The whole cycle of where the energy comes from, how effectively it can be stored and then used for mobility also needs to be considered.

The vast majority of energy is created from gas, oil and coal, creating 32 gigatonnes
of C02 each year.

The debate for Electric v Hydrogen powered vehicles gets heated, with invested parties on both sides defending their camp and attacking the other, even though both technologies are trying to achieve the same thing. Understandably, both are looking for the attention of investment, but rather than highlight deficiencies, we should be highlighting the advantages as there is no single solution to solve the problem.

In this article I look at the considerations required to allow FCEV and BEV vehicles to flourish in the coming years.
