This paper analyses the impact of a transition to Hydrogen (H2) fuel cell vehicles (H2EV) as an alternative to Battery Electric Vehicles (EV) for passengers? cars and its influence on the power sector. A simple model is used to estimate the electricity demand to produce the H2 needed, and CEVESA model, modified to include investments and variable costs of H2 production, is used to solve its impact on the MIBEL electricity market both on the operation and on the investments electricity generation decisions. Some scenarios considering different shares of EV and H2EV have been simulated to assess their impact, with the base case obtained from the recent Spanish National Plan for Energy and Climate (NPEC).
