Fuel cells that use direct hydrogen are opening up a new business opportunity for hydrogen suppliers, according to a new report from Pike Research. The key direct hydrogen fuel cell applications that are currently seeing traction are light-duty vehicles, forklifts, buses, stationary power, and scooters. Forklifts will be the largest driver of hydrogen fuel demand by 2020, representing 36% of the total market (418 million kg/922 million lb) by then. Light-duty vehicles will consume 33% of total hydrogen, and uninterruptible power supplies for stationary power 27%. More than 5200 hydrogen fueling stations for cars, buses, and forklifts will be operational worldwide by 2020, compared with only 200 stations in 2010, and annual investment for such stations will reach $1.6 billion.
