No solution for cars
Fraunhofer expert puts hydrogen Ad Acta: "Time window is almost closed"
Toyota Motors Closed door for hydrogen car: Researchers calculates with fuel cell
Hydrogen will no longer be a relevant alternative for private transport: a researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute is convinced of this. In addition to hydrogen cars, the expert also places H2 for trucks Ad Acta.
At the end of January, a study overview by the scientist DR in the Science Journal Nature Electronics. Patrick PlOtz from the Fraunhofer Institute for System and Innovation Research ISI published as a comment. In his explanations, PlOtz explains that it is too late to give hydrogen an important role in sustainable road traffic.
"Hydrogen will play an important role in industry, shipping and synthetic flight fuels. However, we cannot wait for hydrogen technology in road traffic, but should now concentrate on battery-electric vehicles in passenger and freight traffic", So Dr. PlOtz, which works at the Fraunhofer Institute for System and Innovation Research (ISI) as head of the Energiewirtschaft business area. "The time window for hydrogen cars to achieve a relevant market share is almost closed."
350 battery-electric models, only two hydrogen cars
In the comment, PlOtz indicates, among other things, that around 25 in early 2021.000 hydrogen fuel cell cars were on the road and currently only two standard fuel cell cars are offered for sale: the Toyota Mirai and the Hyundai Nexo. In addition, only around 540 hydrogen filling stations are in operation worldwide – this contrasts PlOtz that "At the beginning of 2022, around 15 million battery-electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles are on the roads of the world" be. In addition, now offer "Almost all manufacturers" Corresponding purely battery -electric vehicles, around 350 different models worldwide.
According to PlOtz, the latest technological developments in battery technology would have made the main arguments for fuel cell vehicles: their allegedly greater reach and their shorter refueling times. "When battery -electric vehicles had a limited range of less than 150 km and charging a few hours, there was an important and large market segment for fuel cell vehicles: long -distance traffic", so root. "Today battery-electric vehicles offer about 400 km of realistic range, and the latest generation uses 800 V batteries that can be charged for a range of 200 km in about 15 minutes."
It should also be too late for fuel cell trucks
PlOtz argues that these technological developments have led to the fact that battery-electric vehicles are now considered most promising in the truck sector. So around 30 are now worldwide.000 battery -electric trucks in operation, most of them in China. Fuel cell trucks would therefore only be driven in test mode, and they are not yet commercially available.
According to PlOtz, the current challenge for battery -electric vehicles is still the logistical long -distance operation and the transport of very heavy goods. "This is the frequently discussed application for hydrogen trucks. Several truck manufacturers as well as fuel cell and infrastructure providers have teamed up and set the goal, until 2030 100.000 fuel cell trucks on European roads. However, this seems very unlikely when you consider that companies announce the earliest start date for the production of commercial series fuel cell trucks for 2027. At this point, the second generation’s battery -electric vehicles will already be commercially available and be in use."
