AGS hydrogen: Before a Transition to Hydrogen
Within this project, our group focuses on assessing the feasibility of hydrogen and other alternatives to decrease the reliance on petroleum. There are two main areas of research: 1. Comparative Assessment of hydrogen with biofuels. 2. Modeling the penetration of advanced vehicles in the global energy system.
The analysis will be conducted primarily using the energy system Global MARKAL Model (GMM). The MARKAL approach refers to a perfect-foresight, optimization model with a detailed representation of energy technologies at the primary, secondary and useful energy levels. Due to the latter characteristic, these models are commonly referred to as "bottom-up" models. GMM will be used to develop alternative scenarios of the global energy system in the next 50 - 100 years in order to assess policies for supporting the introduction of hydrogen at a global level.
