With a number of pathways presented for the decarbonization of the transportation sector, alternative types of technologies such as hydrogen and natural gas vehicles may be beneficial to different categories of vehicle for reducing transportation's carbon impact. In particular, through integration with the power system using electrolyzers and methanators at refueling stations, clean energy produced by renewable generation can be converted into a transportation fuel. Additionally, these technologies have flexible characteristics, meaning they can contribute to the power system's reserve requirements. This paper presents an integrated transportation and unit commitment model to assess how the ..View full abstract
