As the world strives to cut carbon emissions, electric power from renewables has emerged as a vital energy source. Yet transport and industry will still require combustible fuels for many purposes. Such needs could be met with hydrogen, which itself can be produced using renewable power.

The Hon’ble Supreme Court in its order dated 2.7.2018 directed EPCA to look into the issue of hydrogen fuel cell buses. EPCA is filing this report in compliance with this direction.

A task force constituted by Niti Aayog in a report titled Action Plan for Clean Fuel said that taxation and pricing strategy is needed to provide impetus to cleaner fuels and discouraging the use of polluting ones. Lower taxes on the cleaner fuels are sought and for the purpose, GST can create a level playing field in the country, it said.

Industrial restructuring and diversification of energy demand are accelerating in the People’s Republic of China (hereafter, “China”). In addition, driven by resource and environmental constraints, as well as pressure to reduce carbon emissions, China’s primary energy consumption structure is expected to shift in coming decades.

Trucks, trains and ships using hydrogen fuel cells for propulsion are no longer just theoretically possible: they have reached the trial stage.

A team of scientists at the University of Cambridge has developed a way of using solar power to generate a fuel that is both sustainable and relatively cheap to produce.

This literature review analyzes current practices of electric power utilities to plan for the increased deployment of electric vehicles.
