Accelerating Automotive Evolution
Today there are over 800 million vehicles on the road, with the number expected to reach two billion by 2050. Despite significant internal combustion engine developments to reduce emissions, there is a clear need for a cleaner, commercially viable alternative. In response to this need the world’s leading car manufactures have all publicly stated their goal to commercialize fuel cell powered vehicles in the 2014/2020 timescale.
PEM fuel cells in a hybrid electric configuration are viewed as a highly efficient alternative to the internal combustion engine, offering practical driving ranges, the desired performance and dramatically reduced overall emissions, producing no harmful emissions at the exhaust pipe.
In fact, recent research from the US Department of Energy has found that that fuel cell electric vehicles achieved more than twice the efficiency of today’s gasoline vehicles with refuelling times of five minutes average for four kilograms of hydrogen. Click here for the full story
