The introduction of hydrogen fuel cell cars to the automotive market is an effective strategy towards meeting challenging climate change targets as only water vapour is produced in the exhaust (and zero carbon dioxide). It should be noted that these vehicles can compete with conventional petrol cars with regards to performance, such as top speed, acceleration and range.
Additionally the refuelling infrastructure is almost identical to conventional petrol stations, where the tank can be filled in just a few minutes.
Both of these benefits will ensure an easy transition for the end-user when switching to a hydrogen vehicle. It is therefore no surprise that several of the major manufacturers in the automotive market are rolling out their own hydrogen vehicles and we are seeing a growth in the number of hydrogen refuelling stations worldwide.
