Hydrogen energy economic and social challenges by Paul Ekins( )
13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book, based on four years of detailed research, subjects the promise and potential of hydrogen to searching, in-depth socio-economic analysis. It discusses the different technologies for the production, distribution, storage and use of hydrogen, and analyses the economics of these technologies and their current market prospects. It also describes various experiences with aspects of a hydrogen economy in two parts of the world - the UK and Canada - and then assesses the nature of different hydrogen futures that might develop depending on how the technology, economics, social acceptance and policy frameworks play out in different contexts. The book ends by setting out the policy drivers and levers which could stimulate a virtuous circle of research and development, innovation and investment that might ultimately generate a sustainable hydrogen economy." "This is essential reading for economists, engineers, business leaders, investors, policy-makers, researchers and students who are interested in the future of the energy system and the part that hydrogen might play in it."--BOOK JACKET

This book explores in detail those factors which could help or hinder the attainment of the UK's climate change targets, and how these factors interact with the parallel objective of maintaining a robust and secure energy system.
