Hydrogen fuel-cell cars-Germans are dreaming of Them-Already have 15 hydrogen stations
Hydrogen fuel-cell cars
Germans are dreaming of this new technology
Toyota cars go ahead with Hydrogen fuel power
As a result of more advanced research. So, the hydrogen fuel cell technology has moved further on. Hence,
at this moment in time companies are setting up Hydrogen fuel-cell cars filling stations all over Europe. One company that has been heavily involved is Air Liquide . Consequently,who are in the process of developing filling stations. Indeed have built 60 new Hydrogen fuel-cell cars filling stations across the World.
Air Liquide have said that these fuel-cell cars can be filled in a few minutes and the equipment that is used to fill the car is much the same as a diesel or petrol car and is just as safe.
Here in the UK we are making forward moves to build a network of Hydrogen fuel-cell cars fuel filling stations and negotiations are taking place to use the network of supermarket filling stations to accommodate Hydrogen Fuel Cells pumps alongside the standard pumps used for petrol and diesel.
This move by Toyota will bring into play a battle of the green choices; one will be the fuel-cell cars and the other lithium-ion technologies, very interesting to see who will come out on top.
So, to update the situation the Toyota are still leading the way forward. The main stumbling block is the lack of infrastructure for customers to fill up. Importantly, German car maker BMW is also interested in pursuing their interest in the Hydrogen powered cars.
So, BMW along with the “clean energy partnership initiative” are looking to set up to 130 service stations by the year 2022. Ultimately, this will allow up to 60,000 hydrogen cars to operate in Germany. Optimistically, service station locations should increase up to 400 by 2025
