Title

An Assessment of Wind-hydrogen Systems for Light Duty Vehicles

Abstract

A hydrogen economy could offer energy stability, economical, and environmental benefits. In this paper, a hydrogen system based on wind-generated electricity is presented as a viable component in a hydrogen transition strategy. The strengths of a wind-hydrogen system are exhibited in its modular design, exploitation of existing technology, and utilization of a renewable resource. Specifically, a state level assessment of wind power was conducted in order to determine the ability of individual states to meet light-duty vehicle hydrogen fueling demands while utilizing the proposed system. Additionally, analysis related to existing hydrogen resources is presented in order to form a transition scenario.
