Abstract

The future of alternative energy storage for vehicles is bright because the use of hydrogen in the economy provides various solutions to environmental situations. Hydrogen is as flexible as electricity in that it can be produced in both renewable and non-renewable sources of energy. However, the literature written focuses on the conditions that are needed to be accounted for when it comes to switching to hydrogen as an alternative energy storage using statistical analysis. By taking an economic and environmental investigation, hydrogen has the best air pollution emissions in comparison to conventional, hybrid and electric vehicles. It is also found that hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are simpler in design which accounts for its weight that is much lighter than most vehicles. Ergo, hydrogen is the preferred fuel for fuel cell vehicles because of efficiency that can increase the potential for a sustainable climate.
