In Portugal, the transition to new forms of mobility has begun in recent years, but there are still obstacles to overcome. Currently, hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) are the most widespread and accepted by the community and that is probably due to range anxiety, having in fact the possibility of double charging (both through the thermal engine and the electric battery). Furthermore, it must be considered that in addition to electric vehicles, another valid alternative to mobility in the near future is the hydrogen vehicles one. These appear to be even more sustainable from the point of view of air emissions, but on the other hand the costs for the production of hydrogen are still too high. Then, the aim of this study, is to understand if the use of Fuel Cell can find place in Portugal and which cities are most ready to implement this technology. After an analysis of the actual e-mobility scenario in Portugal and based on the history of EV data of the last years, this paper predicts the cities in which a hydrogen refuelling infrastructure should expected to be more profitable, presenting the probable market trend of the same.
