Hydrogen Is Indeed a Fuel of the Future. For Transportation, There Is Little Doubt.
The August 12, 2021 New York Times article by Hiroko Tabuchi leads off with a misleading and narrowly focused headline, “For Many, Hydrogen Is the Fuel of the Future. New Research Raises Doubts.” The article reports on a paper by two university professors whose principal argument is critical of “blue hydrogen,” which is produced from reforming methane (i.e., natural gas) with the expectation that the CO2 generated by this process would be captured and sequestered underground in sealed caverns.
Hydrogen is indeed the fuel of the future, and there is a simple response to quell the doubts: Blue hydrogen is not the end state of hydrogen production that the industry is striving for. Green hydrogen—that is, hydrogen produced from renewable energy (solar and wind) or feedstocks like biogas or waste wood—is where the industry is aiming, although it is an admittedly somewhat nascent industry. But who among us is not striving for self-improvement? The hydrogen industry is no exception.
Natural Resources Defense Council: Four Green Hydrogen Opportunities for the Midwest
1. Green hydrogen can better utilize solar and wind energy when its supply is high and reduce electricity costs for Midwesterners.
2. Green hydrogen can decarbonize steel mills in the Great Lakes region.
3. Green hydrogen can decarbonize trucking along the Midwest corridor and markedly improve air quality for Midwesterners.
4. Green hydrogen can create thousands of Midwestern jobs.
Fuel-cell vehicles are set for big gains in China’s commercial truck market, JPMorgan says
- Fuel cell vehicles could account for one-third of commercial trucks in China by 2050, predicts JPMorgan’s Elaine Wu.
- Major automakers such as Toyota, Honda and BMW are tapping into the hydrogen fuel cell market.
- China is currently leading the world in hydrogen production and accounts for a third of global output, according to Wu.
China is already pushing for the promotion of fuel cell vehicles, according to the JPMorgan analyst.
“The [Chinese] government is promoting something, what we call ‘city clusters’ so that there could be demonstrative cities telling successful stories of how fuel cell vehicles are implemented in various parts of the country,” Wu said.

Toyota to Assemble Fuel Cell Modules at Kentucky Plant in 2023
The dual fuel cell modules, which are a key component of an overall FC kit, weigh approximately 1,400 pounds and can deliver up to 160kW of continuous power. The FC kit also includes a high voltage battery, electric motors, transmission and hydrogen storage assembly from top-tier suppliers. Toyota will also offer its powertrain integration expertise that will help truck manufacturers adapt these emissions-free drivetrain systems to a wide variety of applications in the heavy-duty trucking sector.

Investors See Green Hydrogen Advancing as China Signals Support
More than 20 provinces and 40 cities in China have published development plans worth trillions of yuan for hydrogen energy facilities, according to the state-run Economic Daily. The country delivered 558 fuel-cell buses in the first six months of 2021, compared with 17,000 battery electric buses deployed in the second quarter of this year alone, according to BNEF.
SWITCH Maritime and All American Marine Announce the Launch and Operational Trials of the Sea Change, the World’s First Commercial Vessel Powered 100% by Hydrogen Fuel Cell
All American Marine, Inc. (AAM) and the vessel owner SWITCH Maritime (SWITCH) are pleased to announce the launch and operational trials of Sea Change, a 70-foot, 75-passenger zero-emissions, hydrogen fuel cell-powered, electric-drive ferry that will operate in the California Bay Area. This will be the first hydrogen fuel cell vessel in the US, representing a monumental step in the US maritime industry’s transition to a sustainable future. The ferry was developed and constructed to demonstrate a pathway to commercialization for zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell marine technologies.
Renewable fuels company Raven SR announces strategic investment from Chevron, ITOCHU, Hyzon Motors and Ascent Hydrogen Fund
Hydrogen could fill multiple gaps in the US energy system, but will energy regulations allow it to? Experts say green hydrogen will require a regulatory framework unlike any other in the energy industry.
"One of the things that gets lost when we have a conversation about the grid, is once the hydrogen is available, it has all this utility outside the power grid," Edwards said. "A grid operator managing a hydrogen storage facility doesn't have to sell it as electricity to go back into the grid. ... That is one of the places hydrogen has this strength of flexibility, but it means the regulatory framework needs to be flexible in that same sense."
