  • "Euro-Québec Pilot Project" : Hydrogen as an energy vector for a clean and renewable energy system : Prospect and problems of hydrogen marine transportation


The pilot project consists of electrolytic production of hydrogen in Quebec using clean low cost hydroelectricity, seaborne transportation and usage in Europe. The uses are described in some detail (electricity/heat/water generation, fuel cells, automatic vehicle propulsion, aviation, space vehicles, domestic uses etc.). In the second part of the paper the problems and the foreseeable possible solutions for the seaborne transportation of hydrogen are described.
