Hydrogen as an energy carrier has generated much attention in recent years due to its potential large-scale use in producing electrical energy through fuel-cell technologies and in replacing gasoline for use in transportation. On December 9, 2004, the RAND Corporation hosted a forum on hydrogen technology that drew 40 experts in various fields to discuss what needs to be done to better inform decisionmakers in the public and private sectors of the benefits and risks of various hydrogen-related programs and policies. The forum participants represented a number of public and private organization

Hydrogen has the potential to play an important role as a sustainable and environmentally acceptable energy carrier in the 21st century. This report describes the scientific and technical challenges associated with the production of hydrogen using heat and/or electricity from nuclear power plants, with special emphasis on recent developments in high-temperature electrolysis and the use of different chemical thermodynamic processes. Economics and market analysis as well as safety aspects of the nuclear production of hydrogen are also discussed.

The challenges faced by alternative fuels during the last 20 years have much in common with those that face hydrogen (i.e., building markets simultaneously for new vehicle technologies, new fuels, and new infrastructure to support them both). The U.S. set goals in the 1980s and 1990s to derive a substantial portion of its fuel for transportation from non-petroleum alternative fuels by the early 2000s (10% in 2000, 30% in 2010). Although progress has been made through government and private efforts, these goals have not been met for a variety of reasons. To increase the chances for a timely and

This timely research discusses how developing countries can factor in competing arguments about the impending arrival of practical hydrogen fuel technology as they explore options for future policies. Since the mid-1990s, the emergence of a hydrogen economy and the speed of its arrival have been vigorously debated. The debate has mainly been among policy-makers and industrial or energy firms in the developed nations. Their policies, along with the technological competencies and competitive practices of related industries, have played a central role in shaping both the debate and the direction

Hydrogen and fuel cells are vital technologies to ensure a secure and CO2-free energy future. Their development will take decades of extensive public and private effort to achieve technology breakthroughs and commercial maturity.Government research programmes are indispensable for catalysing the development process. This report maps the IEA countries current efforts to research, develop and deploy the interlocking elements that constitute a hydrogen economy, including CO2 capture and storage when hydrogen is produced out of fossil fuels. It provides an overview of what is being done, and by wh
