Hydrogen technology is gaining traction

Hydrogen technology gets going faster
More recently, in the competition for the future drive technology for cars, hydrogen fuel cells have somewhat behind battery electric drives. But this is only due to a superficial consideration. Recent developments show that hydrogen technology is far from dead: Actually, it is gaining speed.

Hydrogen is becoming cheaper - and hydrogen production is likely to get rid of its image of poor energy efficiency. Euisun Chong, vice chairman of the Hyundai Motor Group and co-chair of the Hydrogen Council, has announced a series of measures to promote hydrogen propulsion. According to media reports, these include cost reductions through technical innovations, the establishment of a safety management system and various political measures.

The Hydrogen Council has published a report that expects the cost of hydrogen solutions in a wide range of applications to fall by 50% by 2030. This could make hydrogen significantly more competitive - not only with respect to battery electric propulsion, but in some cases even with respect to conventional options, it says.
