Fueling the future of mobility

Hydrogen as an energy carrier has two major advantages over fossil fuels for mobility applications. Its energy release through oxidation produces only water as an output, and it is infinitely renewable, as long as the sun shines and the wind blows.

Many million hydrogen fuel-cell passenger vehicles could be built to support aggressive targets in markets such as California, China, Japan and South Korea, according to recent estimates. Western European countries are also paving the way to stimulate H2 fueled mobility.

In the short term, however, hydrogen is more likely to be used for heavier vehicles such as buses, trains and heavy-duty trucks. The first hydrogen-powered trucks already arrived in Switzerland, to bring zero-emission commercial vehicles to European roads.

The key benefits of hydrogen fuel for transport are that it offers similar refueling times and driving ranges as conventional fuels. Achieving equivalent performance to todays gasoline and diesel vehicles is a critical decision point for consumers that would like to switch to zero emission vehicles.

Additionally, hydrogen infrastructure can be implemented in a similar fashion as conventional fuels at every gas station. When compared with battery electric vehicle charging, hydrogen requires no expensive and complex upgrades of the electrical grid or installation of chargers in every household.

Hydrogen fuel cell and storage costs are lower compared to batteries – thus hydrogen can achieve long range without jeopardizing the ability to manufacture vehicles at affordable prices.


(Under construction)

Recent years and months show a major shift towards the development of a hydrogen economy on all continents. In fact there’s so much going on in the sphere of policy making, industrial planning and knowledge exchange that the public needs an overview. What are the most important H2 related developments for industry, transport, mobility and the built environment? By producing regular newscasts we aim to offer such an overview for Europe.
