MSC funds low-carbon transportation research

The Mobility Systems Centre (MSC), one of the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI)’s Low-Carbon Energy Centres, will fund four new research projects that will look into achieving a decarbonised transportation sector with the use of green alternatives such as hydrogen.

Two of the four funded projects have a hydrogen focus, one of which will be carried out by Jessika Trancik, an Associate Professor of Energy Studies in the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society, who will examine and identify the cost-reducing and emissions-saving mechanisms for hydrogen-fuelled mobility services.

Through her research, she plans to analyse production and distribution scenarios, evolving technology costs, and the lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions of hydrogen-based mobility systems, considering both travel activity patterns and fluctuations in the primary energy supply for hydrogen production.

Trancik, commented, “Modelling the mechanisms through which the design of hydrogen-based mobility systems can achieve lower costs and emissions can help inform the development of future infrastructure.”
