Hydrogen Pathways Program

Personal tools

The Hydrogen Pathways Program (2003 - 2006) at the UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies (ITS-Davis) has been a leading contributor to industry, government and public understanding of hydrogen as a transportation fuel. The Hydrogen Pathways program has been a major collaboration between ITS-Davis, state, national and international government agencies, and international energy and automotive companies.

The program focused on understanding the potential transition to a hydrogen-based transportation system.  Our interdisciplinary research team of 15 faculty and 25 graduate students has been supported by a diverse consortium of sponsors including state, national and international government agencies, energy and automotive companies.  Research focused on four key areas: Markets and Demand; Infrastructure Modeling; Policy and Business Stratey; and Environmental Analysis.

Hydrogen Pathways Program officialy ended in its current form as of December 31, 2006. The Sustainable Transportation Energy Pathways (STEPS) program is continuing the research activity in Hydrogen Pathways, and comparing hydrogen as a transportation energy carrier with other fuels.
