The vexed climate change distress has posed the need to opt for cleaner fuels as the transport sector accounts for a large share of greenhouse gas emissions. Around 185 countries, which are party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), have ratified the Paris Agreement 2015 through which they aim at keeping the increase in global temperature below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. Concomitant with this goal, countries would be required to make efforts to decarbonise and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In these circumstances, alternate fuels such as hydrogen are being considered as a viable option to cut down emissions and reduce the dependency on fossil fuels.
