Coalition paints hydrogen future

Coalition paints hydrogen future
Organisations from across the world have joined forces to promote awareness of the benefits of hydrogen technologies.

An international alliance of 16 associations produced a joint statement addressed to Yvo de Boer, executive secretary of the United Nations Framework on Climate Change, explaining how the gas could help tackle environmental problems.

According to the coalition, carbon emissions from light duty vehicles could be reduced by around 80 per cent by investing in the clean energy source.

"Each country around the world has something to gain from using hydrogen technologies and the global community will benefit from the resulting reduction of greenhouse gases," said Terry Kimmel, chairman of the Partnership for Advancing the Transition to Hydrogen (PATH).

He added: "Hydrogen provides so many benefits and works cooperatively with such a wide variety of alternative energy technologies, no national government can afford to leave hydrogen out of its climate change plans."

Under the Climate Change Act, the British government is committed to reducing carbon emissions by 80 per cent from 1990 levels by 2050.

Transport currently accounts for a quarter of the UK's total CO2 output.
