Can hydrogen engines support decarbonization in the off-highway sector?

This presentation will review options for decarbonization in the off-highway sector, considering the potential role of hydrogen internal combustion engines alongside technologies such as fuel cell and battery-electric powertrains. The latest developments in hydrogen combustion engine technology will be examined, and results from hydrogen engine test work carried out at the University of Brighton in collaboration with Ricardo will be presented.
