PE Live: Haulage best suited to hydrogen fuel cells

Heavy-duty road transport is likely to be dominated by hydrogen technologies rather than battery electric vehicles, says panel

Large haulage vehicles are better suited to running on hydrogen fuel cells than grid-charged batteries, according to speakers at a PE Live event on the use of hydrogen in haulage. Road transport is one of the sectors of the economy that could be decarbonised in various ways—the two leading options are through either a hydrogen refuelling network or an electricity charging network. A recent report by thinktank the Energy Transitions Commission says dramatic falls in the price of lithium-ion batteries and steady improvements in battery energy density and charging times have widened the distance and size ranges across which battery electric vehicles (BEVs) can compete with hydrogen fuel-cell
