The minimum is lower than for the high-impact scenarios because in some mitigation scenarios (those that require a very rapid introduction of nonfossil technologies) the replacement of GasCC begins before 2050. The reason for the wide range of fossil fuel-based fuel cells is that, for some mitigation scenarios, highly efficient fuel cells in combination with carbon scrubbing play an important role. Hence the maximum and minimum contributions of fossil fuel cells exceed the range of their contributions in the high-impact scenarios.
