Hydrogen-powered vehicles a solution to Australia’s rising transport sector emissions


Australia’s transport sector emissions are rising and are expected to continue to increase without credible and comprehensive climate and energy policy including support for zero-emission vehicles, according to a new report released by the Climate Council today.

With the transport sector representing Australia’s second highest source of greenhouse gas emissions (after electricity), the report Waiting for the Green Light: Transport Solutions to Climate Change urges that to tackle climate change, Australia must rapidly roll out a fleet of sustainable transport solutions.

As the industry advocate for zero-emission hydrogen (H2) fuel cell transport, Hydrogen Mobility Australia (HMA) welcomes the findings of the report and its recommendations to governments, including the development of a clear transport plan with zero-emission vehicle targets to drive the uptake of buses, trucks and cars powered by clean energy and the introduction of a vehicle emissions standard.

Automotive manufacturers are rapidly growing their range of zero-emission powertrains for light and heavy vehicles to address the pressing need to decarbonise the transport sector, including investing in the development of both electric vehicle technologies available in the marketplace today: battery electric and fuel cell electric.
