Issue Brief - Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCVs) and Economy

June 16, 2019

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges we face.Two of the largest contributors to pollution and GHG emissions are the transportation and energy sectors. Hydrogen fuel cell (FC) technology, which generates electricity through an electrochemical reaction of hydrogen with oxygen while emitting just water vapor, could be a potential solution.

UNDP supports China’s transformation to a low-carbon economy through policy engagement and pilots that lead to scale, which in turn will impact global efforts to combat climate change and environmental degradation. UNDP has been a pioneer and catalyst in introducing and scaling Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCV) technology in China, which are key steps in moving towards a hydrogen economy.
