  • Explores state-of-the-art research in hydrogen energy and vehicle systems
  • Provides the basis to successfully develop, demonstrate, evaluate, and promote the long-term use of hydrogen-based technologies
  • Develops resources to attain, coordinate, and articulate stable and independent energy benefits
  • Focuses on hydrogen fuel and fuel cell technologies, hydrogen vehicle and energy systems, hydrogen infrastructure, and marketing strategies
  • Addresses safety and environmental science issues


With contributions from noted laboratory scientists, professors, and engineers, Hydrogen Energy and Vehicle Systems presents a new comprehensive approach for applying hydrogen-based technologies to the transportation and electric power generation sectors. It shows how these technologies can improve the efficiency and reliability of energy and transportation systems.

The book’s interdisciplinary approach to sustainable energy systems disproves common misconceptions regarding hydrogen technologies and demonstrates that hydrogen technologies are a viable part of a sustainable, stable, and secure energy infrastructure. The book discusses intelligent energy management schemes for hydrogen energy and vehicle systems, safety and environmental science related to hydrogen technologies, and the infrastructure required for safe, renewable hydrogen options.

A clear and up-to-date resource on hydrogen systems, this work provides a balanced presentation of theoretical/technical and application aspects of hydrogen technologies. It presents all stakeholder perspectives and connects hydrogen technology through proper systems analysis and integration, covering both quantitative and qualitative factors.
