The issue is a classic example of the need for public/private co-operation. Governments can set the regulatory framework and support research but private investment is needed to deliver major projects and make hydrogen a viable alternative fuel.

Air Products Supplies Hydrogen Bus Fueling Innovation to OCTA in California: Grand Opening of Nation's Largest Fast-Fill Hydrogen Bus Fueling Station for Orange County Transportation Authority Fleet
The new fueling station, located at OCTA's bus depot, is equipped with Air Products' SmartFuel® hydrogen fueling technology, design, and equipment. OCTA's current hydrogen fuel cell electric bus fleet is comprised of 10 buses, but the station is built for future growth. It has a bus fueling capacity for up to 50 buses, which corresponds to fueling up to 1,500 kilograms (kg) of hydrogen in an eight-hour time period. The station can fuel transit buses with an average of 28 kg of hydrogen per bus in a time frame of 6 to 10 minutes per bus, while also providing back-to-back bus fueling for up to 30 buses and simultaneous fueling capability with multiple fueling lanes.

Hydrogen’s Decarbonization Impact for Industry: Near-term challenges and long-term potential
When considering what a global energy system on a 1.5°C or 2°C pathway will look like by 2050, hydrogen consistently plays a critical role as a low-carbon fuel. In fact, for several industrial application areas, there are no other viable pathways to decarbonization.

Hydrogen Cost to Fall Sharply And Sooner Than Expected: Up to 50% cost reduction appears achievable within this decade as scale up accelerates
A new report published today by the Hydrogen Council, Path to Hydrogen Competitiveness: A Cost Perspective, shows that the cost of hydrogen solutions will fall sharply within the next decade, sooner than previously expected. As scale up of hydrogen production, distribution, as well as of equipment and component manufacturing continues, cost is projected to decrease by up to 50% by 2030 for a wide range of applications, making hydrogen competitive with other low-carbon alternatives and, in some cases, even conventional options.
The study is based on real industry data, with 25,000 data points gathered and analysed from 30 companies using a rigorous methodology. The data was collected and analytical support provided by McKinsey & Company and represents the entire hydrogen value chain across four key geographies (US, Europe, Japan/Korea, and China). It was also reviewed by an independent advisory group comprised of recognised hydrogen and energy transition experts.
