Hydrogen Infrastructure

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0575353/Hydrogen-Infrastructure.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Battery

Hydrogen is widely used for its chemical properties in a range of industrial applications. Fuel cells that use direct hydrogen are opening up a new business opportunity for hydrogen suppliers – one with potentially high demand if some key markets take off. The key direct hydrogen fuel cell applications that are currently seeing traction are light duty vehicles, forklifts, buses, stationary power, and scooters. These fuel cell markets present different infrastructure buildout pathways, with varying opportunities and challenges.

There is no one clear business model for the hydrogen infrastructure market at present. Currently, the major players in hydrogen fueling are large multinationals: the industrial gas companies, and the energy and gas companies, both those that operate retail gas stations and those that provide fuels for the grid. These companies tend to favor large-scale hydrogen infrastructure options. Some smaller "independent" hydrogen suppliers that are developing and marketing smaller onsite hydrogen generator technologies could offer a more modular path to hydrogen infrastructure buildout. Yet another pathway is presented by vehicles using very small quantities of hydrogen, such as scooters. These vehicles can be fueled by small solid state hydrogen cartridges, which are readily distributed in retail outlets.

This Pike Research report analyzes the dynamics of global demand for hydrogen fuel and the infrastructure investments that will support fueling stations for fuel cell light duty vehicles, buses, forklifts, scooters, and stationary power applications. The study includes an examination of market issues, technology issues, and the competitive landscape within the hydrogen infrastructure industry. Market forecasts for hydrogen demand and fueling infrastructure, segmented by application and geography, are provided through 2020.

Key Questions Addressed:

-Which fuel cell applications will drive hydrogen demand?

-What different challenges or opportunities does each fuel cell application present?

-Who are the key players in the hydrogen fueling market and what are their roles?

-Which countries are most focused on building infrastructure for light duty fuel cell vehicles?

-What are the key technical and economic issues facing hydrogen infrastructure buildout?

-How many hydrogen stations have been built? How many are projected to be built through 2020?

-How much investment in hydrogen stations is projected through 2020?
