Decarbonizing the Transportation Sector

Along with other greenhouse gases, such as nitrous oxide and methane, CO 
2 is important
in sustaining a habitable temperature for the planet. Since the 
Industrial Revolution,
however, energy-driven consumption of fossil fuels has led to a rapid 
increase in
CO 2 emissions, disrupting the global carbon cycle and leading to a 
planetary warming
altering the climate in a disconcerting way. The transportation sector 
is responsible for a
significant part of the CO 2 emissions and as such its mitigation has 
been the main impetus
for Electric Vehicle (EV) resurgence and popularity. However, the 
current approach of
using Lithium Ion battery technologies as energy storage may not be 
sustainable. A
sustainable Electric Vehicle paradigm is proposed using hydrogen as 
energy storage
and/or fuel for all transportation needs. The economics and efficiency 
of hydrogen
production using renewable electricity, its distributed delivery system 
and utilization are
discussed. A particular example presented is the Indian scenario, where 
economic ideas are more appropriate for climate change mitigation, 
especially in the
transportation sector.
