About this book

Transition to Hydrogen is a comprehensive and objective guide to understanding hydrogen as a transportation fuel. The effects that pursuing different vehicle technology development paths will have on the economy, the environment, public safety and human health are presented with implications for policy makers, industrial stakeholders and researchers alike. Using hydrogen as a fuel offers a possible solution to satisfying global mobility needs, including sustainability of supply and the potential reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Transition to Hydrogen focuses on research issues that are at the intersection of hydrogen and transportation, since the study of vehicles and energy-carriers is inseparable. It concentrates on light duty vehicles (cars and light trucks), set in the context of other competing technologies, the larger energy sector and the overall economy.

Contents

1. Introduction
2. Life cycle assessment of hydrogen production
3. Technical characterisation and multi-criteria analysis of light-duty vehicles
4. Hydrogen emissions to the atmosphere from industry and transportation
5. Regional fleet simulation
6. Long-term scenarios of the global energy and transport system
7. Integrated assessment of hydrogen in transportation

Biography

Alexander Wokaun is an ETH Professor and the Head of the General Energy Research Department at the Paul Scherrer Institute, Villigen, Switzerland. He received his PhD from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich and subsequently worked at IBM and Bell Laboratories. From 1982 to 1985, he directed a program on surface energy transfer processes at ETH Zurich. In 1986, he became full professor of physical chemistry at the University of Bayreuth, with a research program comprising studies of materials surfaces, catalytic reaction mechanisms and laser surface modification. Since 1994 he has led the General Energy Research Department of the Paul Scherrer Institute and taught in the Chemistry Department at ETH Zurich. Development of a sustainable energy system is at the focus of his research program, which comprises technologies for the use of renewable energies, energy storage, clean and efficient energy converters and assessment of the environmental consequences of energy use. Since 2006 he has been a member of the Advisory Group on Energy of the European Union. He chairs the Steering Committee of the Competence Center Energy and Mobility which facilitates large-scale collaborative projects of ETH domain institutions. In July 2007 he was appointed Vice Director of the Paul Scherrer Institute for the area of Energy Research.

Erik Wilhelm is working towards his PhD from ETH Zurich in the Laboratory for Energy Systems Analysis at the Paul Scherrer Institute. His focus is on powertrain simulation, hybrid control optimization and heuristic vehicle design. He has an Honors Bachelor and Masters of Chemical Engineering from the University of Waterloo, Canada.
