Hydrogen is gaining momentum, overcoming the traditional barriers to electric vehicles:

Traditional Barriers to EV

Hydrogen Current State

Range anxiety

250+ miles per tank; rivalling gas range

Refilling time—replicate gas experience

Complete refilling in as little as 3-5 min.

Clear ROI

Cost-competitive with BEV

Infrastructure in place

Station implementations are increasing; new commercial options available

 

Hydrogen fuel cell vehicle technology has arrived, and public awareness is growing:

Government initiatives to develop hydrogen fuel cell infrastructure: Hydrogen Mobility Europe has deployed nearly 50 stations; while the California Fuel Cell Partnership has deployed 41 stations to date.

Availability and demand for low-emission vehicles: With the launch of the Toyota Mirai, Hyndai Nexo, and Honda Clarity, sightings are common, and public awareness and demand is growing.

Public interest: Prior to 2020, the majority of consumers were already ‘willing to consider’ electric vehicles, even at a premium. Now, with the highly publicized impact of industry emissions on air quality, there is a direct correlation on company sustainability and profitability.

With growing governmental and public support, hydrogen is a hot topic and viable business investment. Private industry looking to differentiate their brands through their values are committing to carbon emissions targets, and exploring a move to a FCEV fleet.

The advantages in publicity, consumer goodwill and long term operating costs make a compelling case for FCEVs. But for most private fleets, adding commercial FCEVs will require an initial capital investment in refuelling stations.

Change is hard; but technologies that match your existing workflow, minimize initial capital investment, and offer a scalable platform for growth can speed ROI for private fleet owners. Haskel Hydrogen Systems is working to do just that. Today, their Geno family of hydrogen refuelling stations are available for both heavy duty vehicles and buses, light duty passenger vehicles, and material handling. The Geno B1200 refuelling station is suitable for the simultaneous refilling of two heavy duty vehicles, ideal for the public transportation or large fleets.

For smaller private fleets, Haskel has an exciting addition coming to its product family—the Nano. [Stay tuned! Sign up for news] The Nano will offer private companies a scalable approach to building a hydrogen fleet, with minimal upfront investment. The Nano will be ideal for supporting the refuelling needs of:

  • Office blocks
  • Industrial equipment, such as forklifts
  • Car manufacturers’ demo events

Movable, transferrable, plug-and-play and easy to use—the soon-to-be released Nano flexible refuelling station is a low risk capital investment as companies add initial FCEVs and make inroads into sustainability.
