Integrating Supply Chains in High-Pressure Hydrogen Systems for Market Advancements

Integrating-Supply-Chains-in-High-Pressure-Hydrogen-Systems

The International Energy Agency estimates that there were 3.1 million electric vehicles (EVs) on the road at the end of 2017 and predicts that there will be 125 million by 2030.

Consumers rank not having enough access to efficient charging stations as the third most serious barrier to EV purchase, behind price and driving range. That’s according to McKinsey’s 2016 EV consumer survey of buyers considering battery-powered EVs in China, Germany, and the United States. With EV prices declining and ranges expanding, charging could soon become the top barrier.

Fueling Hydrogen Innovation: Haskel Contributes to Toyota Hydrogen Road Trip

In case you missed it, Toyota’s hydrogen-fueled Mirai road-tripped across Europe for the past year and a half. What began with a trip from Denmark to Italy in July of 2016 has become a series of transcontinental treks, demonstrating the tremendous commitment Europe has made toward fueling the cars of the future. The European network of hydrogen fueling stations has continued to expand, and technology enthusiasts as well as environmentally conscious motorists have begun paying close attention to the great distances the Mirai can travel. According to the European Alternative Fuels Observatory, there are 82 operational hydrogen filling stations across the continent as of March 2018.
