Hydrogen as a renewable road freight transport fuel – a UK case study

Report summary

Governments and industry seeking to address climate change and reduce air pollution are turning their attention to green hydrogen. Specifically, they’re looking to adopt renewable energy sources in the transportation sector. In this insight, we estimate how feasible transitioning all UK freight transport to green hydrogen is and look at the significant challenges – technological, economic and policy – that remain before large-scale adoption can be achieved. This insight is supported via Wood Mackenzie’s proprietary analysis of the cost of green hydrogen production through the electrolysis method.

Table of contents

  • Hydrogen can decarbonise transport and clean up the air
    • 4 Mtpa hydrogen to replace UK commercial diesel demand
    • Six-fold increase in UK offshore wind to produce this hydrogen
    • Carbon charge of $180 per ton to close the current cost gap
  • Conclusions
