A future hydrogen economy is increasingly seen as the holy grail for energy and transport policy - promising a solution to the twin preoccupations of energy security and climate change. But a new report for the Government has warned against a "premature dash to hydrogen" as a road transport fuel.

But in a major challenge to current policies on energy crops and biofuels, the report suggests that the UK should consider a major programme to produce hydrogen or other road fuels from woody crops.
