ITM Power’s Transportable Hydrogen Refuelling Station (HFuel) is a self-contained module suitable for refuelling hydrogen-powered road vehicles and forklift trucks. HFuel is well suited to small fleet and early ‘hydrogen highway’ applications of both fuel cell and hydrogen engine vehicles (FCV and HICEV). It is based around a modular platform (standard freight containers) and can be expanded at any point after the initial installation enabling a staged roll-out of hydrogen fuel.
Hyundai Motor Co announced today that it will begin series production of its hydrogen ix35 Fuel Cell vehicle for public and private lease by the end of 2012, becoming the first global automaker to begin commercial rollout of zero-emissions vehicles. In December 2012, Hyundai will begin production of the ix35 Fuel Cell at its Ulsan manufacturing facility in Korea, with a target of building up to 1,000 vehicles by 2015.
Hyundai showcased its latest-generation hydrogen fuel-cell technology at the ‘Investing in Future Transport’ conference held at London’s City Hall yesterday. In front of an audience of policy makers, investors and industry representatives, Dr. Sae Hoon Kim, Hyundai’s Principal Fuel Cell Research Engineer, explained the company’s strategy for sustainable future mobility, and presented the innovative zero-emission Hyundai ix35 fuel-cell electric vehicle.
ITM's electrolyser and fuel cell technologies have the potential to become the cornerstones of a future hydrogen economy based on 'green' hydrogen. Their hydrogen systems are able to convert renewable energy to a clean fuel, that can be indefinitely stored for use in transport, residential and industrial applications.
Electric bikes are not totally silent, with a fair amount of noise coming from tyre and wind friction. As a bike rider we need to be aware at all times and ride like we expect someone to step out from behind every bus, and this level of awareness is equally important for our own as well as others’ safety.
