Meeting Hydrogen Demands: Refuelling Methods & Technology
NanoSUN looks at the methods & technologies most suitable for hydrogen vehicle refuelling.
The heavy-duty vehicle sector is progressively being revolutionised by innovative hydrogen (H2) technology. Alternative powertrains, such as hydrogen fuel cells and hydrogen engines, are becoming more widespread in the effort to decarbonise commercial applications. Vehicle developers and end-users are looking to rapidly introduce hydrogen heavy-duty vehicle fleets across the UK and Europe.
To facilitate the implementation of these low-carbon commercial fleets, vehicle operators must be able to depend on a reliable refuelling infrastructure for high pressure hydrogen, both upon launch of an introductory fleet and through long-term establishment.
Over recent years we’ve seen various refuelling technologies develop, specifically designed for the purpose of refuelling hydrogen automotives. However, the performance, cost and reliability of these refuelling technologies must be analysed and compared to determine which options are most commercially viable, and how each is best suited to serve the hydrogen demands of a vehicle operator throughout their fleet’s lifecycle.
NanoSUN examines the most common hydrogen refuelling methods used today to present a detailed comparison of the various refuelling solutions available, and identify the optimum strategy most suitable and beneficial to the heavy-duty vehicle sector. This analysis looks at Decant vs. Cascade Method and Fixed Refuelling Station vs. Mobile Refuelling Station.
