Affordable hydrogen will require fracking, cheap natural gas [w/video]

┬áThe lead author Joan Ogden, said in a statement that, “We seem to be tantalizingly close to the beginning of a hydrogen transition.” But there’s no guarantee. “The next three to four years will be critical for determining whether hydrogen vehicles are just a few years behind electric vehicles, rather than decades,” she said. There are three places where the study thinks a “targeted regional investment of $100-$200 million in support of 100 stations for about 50,000 FCVs would be enough to make hydrogen cost-competitive with gasoline on a cost-per-mile basis.”
