The purpose of this presentation is to review the executive goals of 2005 to make progress on a hydrogen economy that will reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Using NEMS runs and extrapolation of future trends, the presentation discusses on-going trends in carbon emissions and fuel consumption by each economic sector. Additional runs are developed to demonstrate how these projections change should the executive goals be successfully implemented in the future.
