Farsighted air companies are already drawing up plans not only to create Hydrogen-powered airports but H2 fueled aircraft which will herald a defining change in air travel with their use of lighter, cleaner less polluting H2 fuels.
The worlds first Hydrogen train has rolled down the line in Germany equipped with fuel cells which convert hydrogen and oxygen into electricity eliminating zero emissions. That such heavy rolling stock can be propelled by a light green energy source is a world game-changer for rail companies worldwide.
Presently there are approximately 15,000+ hydrogen fuel cell vehicles worldwide, with existing government targets aiming for ten million to be on the roads by 2030. In the following decade, this figure will grow exponentially as the H2 fueling infrastructure spreads throughout the world.
Ultimately, if shipping is going to fully decarbonize it needs to find a replacement for fossil fuels, it will be hydrogen that will be used to power the low-carbon maritime industry of the future. Hydrogen can power not only heavy ocean-going container ships but also passenger liners and pleasure craft, right down to yachts and light river craft.
