“Shell study expects growing importance of hydrogen in the energy mix”

Shell / Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy

Fuel cell electric vehicles could make a significant contribution to reducing CO2 emissions in the transport sector, according to a study by oil company Shell and the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy. “In 2050, 113 million fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) could save up to 68 million tonnes of fuel and almost 200 million tonnes of carbon emissions,” according to a press release.
Shell is one of 13 companies that pledged in January to invest more than 10 billion dollars in the next five years to push hydrogen fuel.
