UT researchers explore potential for increased hydrogen usage

UT Austin researchers have recently participated in two studies leading to the publication of scientific articles examining the potential benefits of increased hydrogen usage. One paper, led by Andrew Chapman with the International Institute for Carbon Neutral Energy Research at Kyushu University in Japan, explored four case studies of the societal penetration of hydrogen in transportation, heating and storage. Co-authors on the paper include UT Austin researchers Todd Davidson, Alan Lloyd, Michael Webber, Michael Lewis and Robert Hebner. A second paper, authored by UT’s Kazunori Nagasawa, along with Davidson, Lloyd and Webber, explored the potential hydrogen demand for light-duty vehicles, and the opportunities associated with producing hydrogen from wind energy.
