Abstract

This paper contributes to H-Delivery Task W3.2: Technology Characterisation. It provides a detailed review of existing Delphi literature dealing with low carbon technologies which either complement or compete with the future of hydrogen energy. Several aspects of hydrogen have been explored using Delphi techniques. These include: · identifying barriers to the use of hydrogen in transport · exploring the future usefulness of hydrogen related technologies on a European scale · exploring energy technologies which could be synergistic / competitive with hydrogen including renewables in Spain, Africa, Finland and Saudi Arabia as well as fossil fuels. · energy reviews applying to Europe and US. These analyses still leave some gaps worth exploring. There has not been a Delphi survey analysing hydrogen production since 1978. The past survey was compromised by the failure of fission based electricity generation with spare capacity for hydrogen production to materialise. In addition, a hierarchy of hydrogen societal welfare impacts has been identified but their potential has not been explored.
