Evaluating Overall Performance of Hydrogen Fuel for Marine Transportation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Hydrogen fuel cell-based ship propulsion is one of the approaches to reduce greenhouse gases
emissions from maritime transportation. For such propulsion to be feasible, production and
transportation modes of hydrogen need to be sustainable in addition to efficient operation of fuel
cells. Although life cycle assessments and well-to-wake approaches have been used to evaluate
the performance of hydrogen fuel cells, there is a need for holistic performance framework that
also incorporates safety in addition to technical, economic and environmental considerations. In
order to address this, a framework to holistically assess the overall performance of hydrogen fuel
cell-based ship propulsion is proposed here. The approach proposed in this paper can aid in
evaluating the performance of hydrogen based marine transportation in addition to identifying
optimal implementation options.
