Hyundai Mobis creates emergency H2 power generation system from fuel cell vehicle technology


Hyundai Mobis, the parts and service arm for the South Korean automakers Hyundai Motor Company, has leveraged its own hydrogen (H2) fuel cell technology for electric vehicles, to create an emergency H2 power generation system at its H2 fuel cell plant in Chungju, South Korea.
