About the book

Hydrogen is a secondary energy source (energy carrier) that has many beneficial characteristics, including its cleanliness, high energy efficiency, and a wide range of conversion and utilization. The utilization of hydrogen produces water, hence, CO2 emission can be mitigated in its utilization site. The employment of hydrogen in the transportation sector, replacing the currently dominating fossil fuels, is strongly expected can improve the efficiency in the mobility, as well as reduce the environmental effects and increase the integrity with other infrastructure, especially the energy systems.

This book deals with the adoption of hydrogen as a future clean-fuel in the transportation sector. The book aims to cover a broad range of sub-topics, including the required conversion technologies, such as fuel cell and fuel mixing, hydrogen storage, hydrogen refueling stations, and infrastructures. In addition, the techno-economic analysis and regulation-related policies and market, including the reports on several case studies, are also covered as the additional sub-topics. Also, as hydrogen-based mobility is very closely related to the energy system, the integration of hydrogen-based mobility with the surrounding energy systems, covering electricity and other energy sources, are included. As a result, a whole picture of hydrogen implementation in mobility can be obtained, giving a clearer projection to our future.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
