NREL study finds high-pressure hydrogen pipeline system could potentially make hydrogen cost-competitive with gasoline

Green Car Congress

A new study by a team at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) concludes that a high-pressure, scalable, intra-city hydrogen pipeline system could improve the economics and logistics of hydrogen delivery, making it potentially cost-competitive with gasoline. However, owing to small scale and limited competition, dispensed hydrogen fuel prices currently are higher, averaging about $16.30/kg in California in the third quarter of 2018.
