Honda Europe says Clarity Fuel Cell, the first of its five hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, to hit the market at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2015, has arrived in Europe, according to Honda Europe. Clarity is the world's first LifePO4 battery pack and drive system successfully incorporated into the hood of the fuel cell vehicle. It is reported that the first arrived Clarity will be used for the European fuel cell car popularization project. Since then, the car will be in London and Copenhagen, Denmark for the general public sales. Honda's director Thomas Brachmann said Clarity's arrival in Europe means that Europe is a major step forward in the practical use of fuel cell vehicles.
Clarity arrived in London on the day, London announced that next year the city will usher in the first hydrogen-powered double-decker bus to improve the city's air quality. London mayor Sadiq Khan said that from 2018 onwards will no longer increase in London pure diesel-powered double-decker buses, all single-decker buses in the city center will achieve zero emissions.
Also last week, the United States issued a hydrogen fuel cell Nikolai semi-trailer trucks, the car mileage of about 1900 km, and provide more than 1000 horsepower and 2700 Nm of torque, is expected to mass production next year. If this is true, it will have twice the power of today's diesel powered semi-trailers. The company also plans in 2018 in the United States, Canada, 364 new hydrogen refueling station. According to the US Department of Energy predicted that the cost of fuel cell systems to 2017 will cost the same with the internal combustion engine, commercial applications will significantly speed up, the next 10 years the market space will exceed 340 billion US dollars.
Hydrogen fuel cell charging only a few minutes, coupled with long mileage and "zero pollution" of atmospheric emissions, hydrogen fuel cells have become the new darling of the car. Although the ideal is full, but the reality is the backbone.
Hydrogen stations in the United States is currently only the number of more than 10 seats, and the construction of a hydrogen refueling station costs up to 1.4 million US dollars, is the ordinary electric car charging station ten times. For the popularity and construction of filling stations, will undoubtedly give enterprises and governments with great pressure
In addition, recently, the United States experts questioned, equipped with a comprehensive hydrogen-powered battery car is really a comprehensive environmental protection.
November 14, the United States and Germany researchers in a new study of pure electric vehicles and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles were compared to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in terms of pure electric vehicles than hydrogen fuel cell vehicles more advantages, is more For environmental protection, economic choice.
Stanford University in the United States issued a communique said that in order to study which type of electric vehicles more environmental and economic advantages, the school and the German Munich University of Technology researchers, selected the California Santa Clara County, North Los Altos Hills The town of the town for the next 10 to 20 years, the popularity of new energy vehicles, related infrastructure and solar power generator energy use, and the use of Munich University of Technology professor Thomas Hammar Hull developed a computer model for simulation.
The sunny town currently has about 8,000 residents, solar powered portable generator power in Santa Clara County is very prominent, car ownership throughout California is the highest. The researchers speculated that the next 10 to 20 years, pure electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles will be more widely used in local, by 2035 electric vehicles accounted for about 38% of the total local transport. By then, the local hydrogen fuel cell vehicles use hydrogen fuel is the use of local cheapest electricity preparation, that is mainly for solar power or power grid.
The researchers combined the above assumptions with the total amount of energy needed for the day at Los Altos Hills, and the data needed to build the infrastructure for electric vehicles. Previous studies have suggested that hydrogen fuel cell-related hydrogen refueling facilities stored in excess of clean energy can be used for building heating, lighting and so on. Data analysis and analysis found that by 2035, only a small part of the above-mentioned form of hydrogen can be used for building heating and lighting. As a result, pure electric vehicles perform better than hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in reducing carbon emissions.
In addition, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in order to be competitive in the overall cost of the vehicle pricing must be much lower than the pure electric vehicles. However, the reality is that in the foreseeable future, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are much more expensive than pure electric vehicles.
Therefore, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in environmental protection and economic benefits of both, are not reflected in higher than the advantages of pure electric vehicles.
