Hydrogen is seen as one of the energy carriers that have the potential to enable a transition towards a sustainable energy system. Special interest for hydrogen is discernible with the car industry. Currently, barriers like the high cost of fuel cells, institutional barriers and the absence of a fine-meshed infrastructure prevent the widespread application of hydrogen technologies.
