This study asks if hydrogen-based road transport, especially FCEVs in the fleets of passenger cars, buses, and trucks, could be economically justified in the ASEAN member states. If not, what strategies to take for ASEAN member states?
This study examines the relationship between energy policies and the economic feasibility of hydrogen energy for road transport in China, especially focusing on hydrogen as energy storage for renewables – also known as green hydrogen.
This analysis is based on granular, annual information on the location of public charging infrastructure and the battery-electric vehicle ownership rate across 356 Norwegian LAU-2 municipalities between 2009 and 2019.
While fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) fueled by hydrogen produced using low-carbon processes could considerably reduce carbon emissions from transportation, FCEVs are produced at low volume, are expensive to manufacture, and lack widespread refueling infrastructure.

Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) look to be critical to improving urban air quality, particularly in less-developed countries where cities are among the most polluted and fastest developing. However, despite sharp price drops in batteries and generous subsidies, BEV adoption in these countries remains low.
To save mankind from the impending disaster of global warming, the transition of transport away from fossil fuels is critical. The International Energy Agency (IEA) Report of last year on the feasible pathway to net zero by 2050 and restricting global warming to 1.5 degrees envisages the complete switchover in the world to EVs by 2035 and of electricity systems phasing out fossil fuel use around the same time.
