Toyota hydrogen fuel cell powered truck

 

TRUCKING - This is the really tough nut to crack, and without it we have a dysfunctional energy infrastructure. This electric Toyota is powered by hydrogen fuel cells. Dual purposes service stations hold the potential to smooth peaks and troughs in renewable energy supply, making a less reliable infrastructure, more secure. Surely that qualifies as an IPCEI.

 

 

 

A Hydrogen Highway is a network of smart service stations that can support refueling of heavy goods vehicles, alongside ordinary cars and vans.

Hydrogen powered electric buses are becoming very popular. With exchange refuelling using high pressure gas cartridges, or liquid hydrogen cartridges, coaches and trucks might have unlimited ranges. We hope this is a topic of discussion at the forthcoming UN COP 26 in Glasgow, Scotland in November 2021.
