A Simulated Roadmap of Hydrogen Technology Contribution to Climate Change Mitigation Based on Representative Concentration Pathways Considerations


Hydrogen as fuel has been a promising technology toward climate change mitigation efforts. To this end, in this paper we analyze the contribution of hydrogen technology to our future environmental goals. It is assumed that hydrogen is being produced in higher efficiency across time and this is simulated on Global Change Assessment Model (GCAM). The environmental restrictions applied are the expected emissions representative concentration pathways (RCP) 2.6, 4.5, and 6.0. Our results have shown increasing hydrogen production as the environmental constraints become stricter and hydrogen more efficient in being produced. This increase has been quantified and provided on open access as Supporting Information to this manuscript.
