  • The Potential Role of Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in Solving the Climate, Environmental and Energy Challenges.

    Alan C. Lloyd, Ph.D.

    President, International Council on Clean Transportation

    Joint 12th IPHE Implementation and Liaison (ILC)

    & Steering Committee (SC) Meeting

    December 2, 2009

  • Slide 2

    International Council on Clean Transportation Goal of the ICCT is to dramatically reduce

    conventional pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions from all transportation sources in order to improve air quality and human health, and mitigate climate change.

    Promotes best practices and comprehensive solutions to:

    Improve vehicle emissions and efficiency Increase fuel quality and sustainability of

    alternative fuels

    Reduce pollution from the in-use fleet, and Curtail emissions from international goods


    The Council is made up of leading regulators and experts from around the world."

  • Outline Introduction and background Changing global landscape Market deployment opportunities Fuel cell transportation applications Stationary energy generation opportunities Future needs and prognosis

  • Augmenting CO2: Control to Mitigate Climate Change

    In addition to CO2 reduction, need more fast action policies (Molina et al. 2009)

    Reduction of HFCS with high GWP Reduction of precursor gases to ozone formation Reduction of black carbon (B.C. and/or soot) Strong link between conventional pollutants and

  • Market Deployment Opportunities

    Global environment and climate challenges require actions to increase efficiency and decarbonize fuels

    Magnitude of challenge will require sustained effort to dramatically reduce pollution and GHG

    Hydrogen in transportation and stationary applications can play a role how significant depends on policies and actions in the next few years

  • Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Chico, California, USA

    Natural or bio-gas is fed to the Fuel Cell , where hydrogen gas is extracted and combined with oxygen from the air to produce electricity, heat, and water. Heat is then recovered and used to heat water for brewing and the electricity is used throughout the brewery. Fuel Cells are efficient, quiet, and produce extremely low emissions.

    Completed one of the largest fuel cell installation in the United States - installing four 250-kilowatt co-generation fuel cell power units to supply electric power and heat to the brewery.
