Responding to the sustained interest in and controversial discussion of the prospects of hydrogen, this book strives to reflect critically on the perspectives of a hydrogen economy in light of the global energy challenge, in particular the question how to meet the growing demand for transport energy in the long term and how to secure sustainable energy for transportation.
This book stands out from other publications by its emphasis on setting the scene for hydrogen and the comprehensive coverage of all aspects related to the hydrogen subject, that is technical, environmental and socio-economic, and with a global geographic scope.
The aim is to provide a reference book and compendium about hydrogen that should be of interest to anyone who wants to catch up on the status of the hydrogen discussion, look up a specific aspect related to hydrogen, or understand how hydrogen comes off compared to other mobility solutions. The book should appeal to a fairly broad readership: academia, policy makers and industry.

This book highlights the opportunities and the challenges of introducing hydrogen as alternative transport fuel from an economic, technical and environmental point of view. Through its multi-disciplinary approach the book provides researchers, decision makers and policy makers with a solid and wide-ranging knowledge base concerning the hydrogen economy.About the Author:
Michael Ball studied Industrial Engineering at the University of Karlsruhe, where he also received his Ph.D. in 2006 in the field of energy-system modelling, developing a model for hydrogen infrastructure analysis, which served as a tool for producing the European Hydrogen Energy Roadmap. After a stay as a researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovative Research (ISI) in Karlsruhe, he joined Shell in the Netherlands in 2006. He has held various positions as project CO2 advisor, before becoming involved with hydrogen business development at Shell. Dr Martin Wietschel is the co-ordinator of the 'Energy Economics' business unit at the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research, Karlsruhe. He is a Professor at the University of Karlsruhe and a Lecturer at the ETH in Zurich. His work focuses on socioeconomic and technical research, mainly in the field of energy and the environment.
