Hydrogen as an energy carrier has generated much attention in recent years due to its potential large-scale use in producing electrical energy through fuel-cell technologies and in replacing gasoline for use in transportation. On December 9, 2004, the RAND Corporation hosted a forum on hydrogen technology that drew 40 experts in various fields to discuss what needs to be done to better inform decisionmakers in the public and private sectors of the benefits and risks of various hydrogen-related programs and policies. The forum participants represented a number of public and private organizations and had varied interests in as well as varied perspectives on the future of hydrogen as an alternative energy carrier. The document summarizes the proceedings of that forum.

The research described in this report was funded by a consortium of companies and institutions interested in hydrogen technology and uses was conducted by RAND Infrastructure, Safety, and Environment.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation conference proceeding series. RAND conference proceedings present a collection of papers delivered at a conference or a summary of the conference.
