Fuel suppliers take on the renewable hydrogen challenge to power FCEV trucks

Fuel cells could enable zero-emission heavy-duty long-haul, but for that to really happen, large-scale renewable hydrogen production must become a reality. By Xavier Boucherat

Truck-makers are busy exploring the potential for electrification to clean up the sector, and battery propulsion has emerged as a clear candidate for short-haul applications such as delivery, return-to-base operations and drayage. But when it comes to long-haul, the overall consensus seems to be that, in lieu of revolutionary technological advances, batteries are not fit for purpose, with limited ranges, long charging times and a lack of fast-charging infrastructure making it an untenable proposition for operators….
