Responding to the sustained interest in and controversial discussion of the prospects of hydrogen, this book strives to reflect on the perspectives of a hydrogen economy in light of the global energy challenge, in particular the question of how to meet the growing demand for transport energy in the long term and how to secure sustainable energy for transportation. This book stands out from other publications by its emphasis on setting the scene for hydrogen, and the comprehensive coverage of all aspects related to the hydrogen subject. It aims to provide a reference and compendium about hydrogen that should be of interest to anyone who wants to catch up on the status of the hydrogen discussion, look up a specific aspect related to hydrogen, or understand how hydrogen comes off compared to other mobility solutions. The book should appeal to a fairly broad readership: academia, policy makers and industry.

The announcement of a hydrogen fuel initiative in the President’s 2003 State of the Union speech substantially increased interest in the potential for hydrogen to play a major role in the nation’s long-term energy future. Prior to that event, DOE asked the National Research Council to examine key technical issues about the hydrogen economy to assist in the development of its hydrogen R&D program. Included in the assessment were the current state of technology; future cost estimates; CO2 emissions; distribution, storage, and end use considerations; and the DOE RD&D program. The report provides an assessment of hydrogen as a fuel in the nation’s future energy economy and describes a number of important challenges that must be overcome if it is to make a major energy contribution. Topics covered include the hydrogen end-use technologies, transportation, hydrogen production technologies, and transition issues for hydrogen in vehicles.

Ist Wasserstoff die Lï¿1⁄2sung fï¿1⁄2r all unsere Energie- und Umweltprobleme? Die weit verbreitete Meinung in den Medien, bei Umweltexperten, Industrieanalysten und Autoherstellern scheint zu sein, dass emissionsfreie Brennstoffzellen auf Wasserstoffbasis schon in einigen Jahren, spï¿1⁄2testens aber binnen der nï¿1⁄2chsten zwei Jahrzehnte die Rettung bringen kï¿1⁄2nnten. So schnell geht es aber nicht, sagt Joseph Romm. In "Der Wasserstoff-Boom" erklï¿1⁄2rt er, warum Wasserstoff nicht die vielgepriesene einfache technologische Lï¿1⁄2sung ist und warnt vor ï¿1⁄2berzogenen Erwartungen an die Brennstoffzellen, die den Markt neu beleben und das Weltklima retten sollen. Zwar kï¿1⁄2nnten Gebï¿1⁄2ude und Fabriken ab 2010 tatsï¿1⁄2chlich mit Energie aus Brennstoffzellen versorgt werden, argumentiert Romm, aber auf den grï¿1⁄2ï¿1⁄2ten Verursacher fï¿1⁄2r Treibhausgasemmissionen, den Straï¿1⁄2enverkehr, wird Wasserstoff wahrscheinlich nicht vor 2050 einen spï¿1⁄2rbaren Einfluss haben. Da unser Klima aber solange nicht warten kann, mï¿1⁄2ssen wir sofort reagieren und die energieeffizienten und erneuerbaren Technologien, die bereits kommerziell verfï¿1⁄2gbar sind, schneller einfï¿1⁄2hren. "Der Wasserstoff-Boom" bietet eine nï¿1⁄2chterne und hï¿1⁄2chst lesenswerte Analyse der politischen, wirtschaftlichen und technologischen Hintergrï¿1⁄2nde rund um den Wasserstoff und Klimaschutz. In einer Zeit, wo es mitunter schwer ist, Wissenschaft und Spinnerei auseinander zu halten, gibt Romm eine sachliche Einfï¿1⁄2hrung in die Wasserstoff- und Brennstoffzellen-Technologie, offenbart die praktischen Schwierigkeiten beim ï¿1⁄2bergang zur Wasserstoffwirtschaft und zeigt, warum weder Politik noch Wirtschaft darauf vertrauen sollten, dass Wasserstoff-Autos kurz- oder mittelfristig einen kommerziellen Erfolg haben werden, auch nicht unter den immer bedrohlicher werdenden Anzeichen fï¿1⁄2r eine Klimaverï¿1⁄2nderung. "Romms klare und prï¿1⁄2zise Analyse ist eine Pflichtlektï¿1⁄2re fï¿1⁄2r jeden, der meint, mit Wasserstoffautos lieï¿1⁄2e sich vor Mitte dieses Jahrhunderts ein Beitrag zum Klimaschutz leisten." (Arthur H. Rosenfeld, Bevollmï¿1⁄2chtigter der California Energy Commission)

The fields covered by the hydrogen energy topic have grown rapidly, and now it has become clearly multidisciplinary. In addition to production, hydrogen purification and especially storage are key challenges that could limit the use of hydrogen fuel. In this book, the purification of hydrogen with membrane technology and its storage in "solid" form using new hydrides and carbon materials are addressed. Other novelties of this volume include the power conditioning of water electrolyzers, the integration in the electric grid of renewable hydrogen systems and the future role of microreactors and micro-process engineering in hydrogen technology as well as the potential of computational fluid dynamics to hydrogen equipment design and the assessment of safety issues. Finally, and being aware that transportation will likely constitute the first commercial application of hydrogen fuel, two chapters are devoted to the recent advances in hydrogen fuel cells and hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engines for transport vehicles. Hydrogen from water and biomass considered Holistic approach to the topic of renewable hydrogen production Power conditioning of water electrolyzers and integration of renewable hydrogen energy systems considered Subjects not included in previous books on hydrogen energy Micro process technology considered Subject not included in previous books on hydrogen energy Applications of CFD considered Subject not included in previous books on hydrogen energy Fundamental aspects will not be discussed in detail consciously as they are suitably addressed in previous books Emphasis on technological advancements Chapters written by recognized experts Up-to date approach to the subjects and relevant bibliographic references

Hydrogen offers a promising alternative for supplying clean and sustainable energy to meet increasing demands worldwide. However, materials are key to transforming the technology into a viable industry. Materials for the Hydrogen Economy describes the technical challenges and the current efforts in developing materials possessing the properties required for handling each stage of the hydrogen fuel chain. Thorough coverage offers newcomers as well as experienced engineers and researchers a reliable and fully scalable foundation in this field. This book covers all seven of the current hydrogen production methods, as well as distribution, storage, and utilization technologies, particularly fuel cells. It details the chemical reactions, processes, types of feedstock, and commercial equipment involved in hydrogen production. It also covers methods, membranes, liners, and sensors used for separating, sealing, and purifying hydrogen. Several chapters examine corrosion effects in pipeline steels and other storage and transportation vessels, leading to discussions of hydrogen permeation barriers, barrier coatings, and hydrides for on-board hydrogen storage. The final chapters focus on electrolytes and component materials for solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) and H2/O2 PEM fuel cells. Materials for the Hydrogen Economy provides a broad review of material requirements for handling hydrogen from production to market. It explores the development of these materials alongside essential considerations and issues associated with their deployment.

There are few existential challenges more serious in the twenty first century than energy transition. As current trends in energy production prove unsustainable for the environment, energy security, and economic development, innovation becomes imperative. Yet, with technological challenges, come legal challenges. Zillman, Godden, Paddock, and Roggenkamp assemble a team of experts in their field to debate how the law may have to adapt to changes in the area. What regulatory approach should be used? How do we deal with longer-term investment horizons and so called 'stranded assets' such as coal-fired power stations? And can a form of energy justice be achieved which encompasses human rights, sustainable development goals, and the eradication of energy poverty? With a concept as unwieldy as energy innovation, it is high time for a text tackling changes which are dynamic and diverse across different communities, and which provides a thorough examination of the legal ramifications of the most recent technological changes. This book which be of vital importance to lawyers, policy-makers, economists, and the general reader.

South Africa and the Global Hydrogen Economy is the publication of a MISTRA research project on the use of strategic minerals in the global putative hydrogen economy. The book highlights the global significance of platinum group metals (PGM) and explores the strategic opportunities that arise out of South Africa's endowment of these strategic resources. From their extraction to their applications in fuel cells, what options are available for the country, the region and the world to better leverage this endowment towards supporting growth and development objectives? In view of their expanding range of applications, do PGM need the hydrogen economy? Conversely, does the hydrogen economy need PGM? Addressed to all industry stakeholders, including those in the public and private sectors, the options explored in this book are based on a thorough analysis of the global dynamics that should inform policy and business models related to PGM.
