Study proves fuel cell vehicles are environmentally friendlier than battery vehicles

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 Council joins Energy Ministers in support of Hydrogen Initiative

The Hydrogen Council today joined the 10th annual Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM10) meeting hosted by the Canadian government in Vancouver, to celebrate the launch of the Hydrogen Initiative, a new effort to mobilize CEM-affiliated governments to consider policies and programmes in support of full-scale deployment of hydrogen technologies across all aspects of the economy. As a first-of-its-kind global group of CEOs from 54 energy, transport, and industry companies advocating for the accelerated deployment of hydrogen solutions, the Hydrogen Council will represent the industry in the CEM Hydrogen Initiative.
