Director, Smart Mobility Initiatives
As Director of Smart Mobility Initiatives at NextEnergy, I feel that it is important for us to understand various technologies and how they each can contribute to the future overall mobility solution. One technology that has regained steam in the past few years is hydrogen fuel cells (HFC). The growth of battery electric vehicles (BEVs), fueled by falling technology costs and increased consumer awareness, has overshadowed HFC development during the last decade. So while BEVs seem poised to dominate the car and crossover utility vehicle markets, there are significant challenges battery technology faces with larger heavy duty vehicles (HDVs) such as long range buses, semi-trucks, and fire trucks. It is within markets like these that hydrogen has an opportunity to provide a long-term sustainable solution. In addition, HFCs are showing promise as a stationary solution for grid infrastructure.
To learn more about our view on this topic, we invite you to download our new white paper, “Evaluating the Case for Hydrogen.”
