The role of fossil fuels and CCS in a cleaner transport system

In short, a possible solution for hydrogen production for cars could be to use fossil fuels. We will tell you why and how!

Currently, road transport contribution to global CO2 emissions is around 23%. The main options to reducing the CO2 emissions from the transport sector are electric cars and fuel cell cars powered by hydrogen.

Hydrogen vs. electric cars?

Norway has had a tremendous increase in electric cars on the roads over the past few years, and now the interest in fuel-cell cars is also increasing. We will not venture to predict what type of cars will be the winner in the long run in Norway or internationally – or whether we will have transport systems where both types have their roles. However, in order to significantly reduce the CO2 emissions from the transport sector, the use of these types of cars should increase substantially.
