The Canadian researchers developed a hydrogen supply chain model.
The model that the University of British Columbia (UBC) researchers developed can help boost support for B.C. hydrogen cars, transforming them from a novelty clean transportation idea into everyday transportation within three decades.
The 2019 Hyundai NEXO hydrogen fuel cell electric SUV has earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for vehicles built after June 2019. The NEXO, which is only available in California, is the first such hydrogen fuel cell vehicle that IIHS has tested.
Due to the new, additional tax planned by the German government, the issue of CO2 has become number one again in recent days. Heating and motoring in particular shall gradually become more expensive, so much so that in the long run fewer and fewer people will be able to afford a car at all. Or they will be forced to buy a new car which is not powered by fossil fuels. The real question is, how bad are alternative motoring concepts for the environment, how do they worsen the greenhouse effect, and are batteries really the solution?
Hydrogen-powered cars might make a lot of sense, but there are only two public filling stations in Canada: one in Quebec City and one in Vancouver. A third is planned for Montreal and a half-dozen more for B.C.’s Lower Mainland. But outside those areas, without being able to refuel, they’ll literally go nowhere.
Hydrogen fuel facilities experienced two fires this month in Santa Clara, California, and in Norway. But despite these setbacks, the International Energy Agency (IEA) released a report on Friday saying that the fuel is an important potential part of a low-carbon future.
The world has an important opportunity to tap into hydrogen’s vast potential to become a critical part of a more sustainable and secure energy future, the International Energy Agency said in a major new report today.
