The Hydrogen Economy: Opportunities,Costs, Barriers, and R&D Needs
A transition to hydrogen as a major fuel in the next 50 years could significantly change the U.S. energy economy, reducing air emissions and expanding domestic energy resources, but technical, economic, and infrastructure barriers need to be overcome. This new report identifies and evaluates the various ways of producing and using hydrogen as a source of energy in the transportation, residential, and commercial sectors of the economy.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on February 4, 2004 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
