Technical end economic viability of hydrogen road vehicles in Valencia, Spain

Main Article Content

David Pla Bernalte


Decarbonising the automotive industry is important in improving air quality by reducing emissions. As one of the main promising alternatives to achieve this, hydrogen technologies are emerging. This paper will analyse the hydrogen automotive market, studying the economic and functional feasibility of implementing a plan to introduce hydrogen vehicles in society. The necessary supply is estimated, as well as the green production of the required hydrogen through the investigation of a plant to produce this gas using solar energy. This way, a vision of the future of hydrogen technologies applied to automation and its possible introduction to society will be obtained.
