Clean tech in Transport: which Technology will win?

The market for battery electric vehicles has well and truly taken off overseas, and a good range of models are finally starting to arrive in Australia. Meanwhile hydrogen fuel cells for automobiles have had their ups and downs over the years, but they appear to be finally gaining some initial traction in overseas markets, which has drawn the attention of various Australian industry and government bodies. The debate is now raging: which electric vehicle is better, batteries or hydrogen? Is the internal combustion engine dead, or can we find alternative fuels for it? Which technology will “win” this race?
