Hydrogen Costs Could Be Set To Plunge By 50%

While Elon Musk and other naysayers have condemned hydrogen, the energy is expected to see a breakthrough over the new decade:  a 50 percent cost reduction — making it highly competitive with traditional fuel and low-carbon alternatives. div[id^="vemba-player-sticky-"]:not(.vemba-player-sticky) { margin-top: 15px; } [id^='vemba-close-']:before { content: "close[x]"; position: absolute; top: 28px; background: black; color: white; z-index: 999999; pointer-events: all; padding: 2px 4px!important; } [id^="vemba-close-"] { background: #000; color: transparent !important; float: right; pointer-events: none; margin: 0!important; width: auto!important; padding: 2px 5px!important; background: none; }

That comes from a new study by Hydrogen Council and McKinsey & Co., Path to Hydrogen Competitiveness: A Cost Perspective. The report outlines three core market drivers: a steep drop in production costs, higher load utilization cutting distribution and refueling costs, and additional cost drops from scaling up of end-use equipment manufacturing.

The study looked at 25,000 data points gathered and analyzed from 30 global companies with cost reductions expected across several different hydrogen applications. These sectors include long-distance and heavy-duty transportation, industrial heating, heavy industry feedstock, and others, which make up about 15 percent of global energy consumption.

Writers of the study see the need for supportive government…

    Guideway electric vehicles will drop the energy used by 7/8th from the average US sedan. Hydrogen to power vehicles will be far less than assumed today. PV solar is compatible with real time harvesting of energy so no need to use hydrogen energy storage with it's losses. HEFF is at the DOE and their official response was "discouraged". Freight using the sun's radiation will switch oil from a resource to burn to better uses.
