This paper focuses on FuelCell-based electromobility (Commercial and Heavy-Duty Vehicles) to judge its ability to reduce GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions in the Transport sector as to fulfill Paris Agreement demands to struggle against Global warming. Current LCA studies and literature show that BEVs (Battery Powered Vehicles) offer lesser emissions and better driving experience to users compared to FCEVs (Fuel Cell Vehicles) with existing German’s energy mix, but in the longer run transformation is needed in transportation sector and infrastructure to diminish emissions arising from this sector. Since most of the developed nations are looking beyond 2030 with a vision of renewables integration for Power and Energy so, LCA results proved that: In upcoming decades, FCEVs offer lesser or zero-emissions with same driving experience as provided by BEVs. H2 (Hydrogen) here plays a significant role because its production is very energy-intensive; hence, future Fuel Cell mobility is only beneficial if H2 supply is ensured by renewables. From the historical point of view, Europe always acted as a leader among all continents to fight against climate change, and Germany is the prime economy in Europe and a foremost contributor to GHG emissions. Therefore, it has been chosen for our LCA study.
