The purpose of this project is to identify and examine possible near and long-term ecological and environmental effects of the production of hydrogen from various energy sources (based on the DOE hydrogen production strategy) and the use of that hydrogen as a transportation fuel and for stationary power. Precise systems-based engineering models of the likely hydrogen and criteria pollutant emissions will be developed and the potential impacts of the different market penetration scenarios will be quantified.
