This represents a step change from the situation of only five years ago.
This review shows that challenges around cost and performance remain, and considerable improvements are still required for hydrogen to become truly competitive.

But such competitiveness in the medium-term future no longer seems an unrealistic prospect, which fully justifies the growing interest and policy support for these technologies around the world.

Cameron, Kathrin Preuss, Maria-Magdalena Titirici, Ioannis Ieropoulos and Mirella Di Lorenzo (doi: 10.1016/j.electacta.20).The article appears in , Volume 192 (February 2016), published by Elsevier.The picture that emerges is one of qualified promise: hydrogen is well established in certain niches such as forklift trucks, while mainstream applications are now forthcoming.Hydrogen vehicles are available commercially in several countries, and 225 000 fuel cell home heating systems have been sold.For 140 years, we have partnered with the research world to curate and verify scientific knowledge.Today, we’re committed to bringing that rigor to a new generation of platforms.
