Pure Electronic Vehicles Develop Flouring, Hydrogen Cell Is Most Welcomed By The Industry Giants Yet

- Jul 10, 2018 -

Hydrogen fuel- cell can make a cell vehicle zero pollution and zero emissions, it is an ideal clean energy in the future, an industrial insider deems it will be the ultimate solution of new energy vehicles, it can also ensure our national energy and environmental security.

Ouyang Minggao, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Executive Vice President of the 100-Member Committee of China Electric Vehicle, said that in terms of new energy vehicles, fuel cell vehicles and pure electric vehicles will co-exist in the future.

So what about the development of hydrogen fuel-cell cars? Let’s see in 2 cases.

Audi has increased spending on research and development of hydrogen fuel cells, while Renault Nissan has switched to pure electric cars

Audi has a history of more than 20 years of research and development of hydrogen fuel cells. It is responsible for the development of hydrogen fuel cells within the Volkswagen group. In June this year, Audi extended in terms of the hydrogen fuel cell research and development cooperation with Ballard Power Systems Inc. to August, 2022. The total value of contract extension is expected to be $62 million - $100 million. Audi and Ballard formed a partnership in 2016 to work together on HyMotion, a hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle. The extension of Audi's partnership with Ballard is aimed at developing the more mass-produced hydrogen fuel cell technology.st, 2022.

Audi is reported also working with Hyundai Motor to develop hydrogen fuel cell technology. On June 20th, Hyundai said in a statement, the two companies have reached a patent cross-licensing agreement for many years, the two sides will authorize the common component parts of the competition relationship to each other, the agreement covers a wide range of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle parts and technology. The two companies will use their collective research and development capabilities in hydrogen fuel cell technology to boost their respective positions in the market for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. It is reported that Hyundai is the first modern large-scale production of the hydrogen fuel cell car company in the world, it has built a production system for the core components of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in Chungju last year, the system can produce 3000 integrated power hydrogen fuel-cell modules per year.

 

On the other hand, Audi and Hyundai are committed to further investing in research and development of hydrogen fuel cells. On the other hand, several international vehicle giants have announced an end to cooperation on hydrogen fuel cells.

 

According to Japanese media reports, Nissan and Renault's enterprise alliance has decided to freeze the 5-year cooperation with Germany's Daimler on the plan of commercializing the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle and will focus on pure electric vehicles. Several parties cooperation dates back to 2013, in order to reduce r&d investment, reduce risk, Daimler, Ford, and Nissan Alliance signed a strategic cooperation agreement to deep the cooperation in the field of hydrogen fuel cell car, joint research and development can share the hydrogen fuel cell stack, hydrogen fuel cell system and other hydrogen fuel cell car parts.

 

Therefore, the development of hydrogen fuel cell is not a one-sided situation, and the prospect remains to be further observed.

 

Japan has proposed building a "hydrogen society" and has built about 100 hydrogenation stations

 

The main factor restricting the development of hydrogen fuel cell car industry is the technical bottleneck. The core of fuel cell system consists of battery reactor, fuel processor, air compressor and so on. On these key technical issues, only a handful of companies are fully in control. In addition to the fuel cell system itself has a lot of technical barriers, in such aspects as hydrogen manufacturing, transportation and storage is also there is a big difficulty, the first is to overcome the low cost hydrogen production technology, only reduce the hydrogen fuel price, to attract more people to buy hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.Audi is reported also working with Hyundai Motor to develop hydrogen fuel cell technology.

Just as fuel trucks need gas stations to refill their tanks, so do hydrogen fuel-cell cars. However, the construction of filling stations, the cost is far higher than to build gas stations, and the security of the hydrogen storage requirements are much higher than the gas station, cost and safety factors which restricted the popularity of the filling station. Hydrogen fuel-cell cars are hard to develop without a hydrogen station.

 

Although the development of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles is faced with many difficulties, Japan has made certain achievements in this field, leading the development of the industry. As is known to all, Japan has a developed economy and consumes a lot of energy. But at the same time, Japan has a small territory, the lack of resources, which greatly restrict the development of Japanese economy, in this case the Japanese to vigorously develop renewable energy technology, hydrogen fuel cell technology is one of them.

 

Toyota, the Japanese car company, began developing hydrogen fuel-cell cars as early as 1992.In April 2014, the Japanese government formulated the "Fourth Basic Energy Plan", which clearly proposed the strategic direction of accelerating the construction and development of the "hydrogen energy society". Toyota also began selling the world's first hydrogen fuel-cell car, the Mirai, at the end of 2014, and extended its market reach to Europe and the United States in 2015.In its 2017 white paper on energy, the Japanese government explicitly called for a national effort to support the development of fuel cell technology.

 

Japan now has about 100 hydrogenation stations as the infrastructure. According to the issue by the Association of Hydrogen Energy and Fuel Cell Strategy "Hydrogen Energy and Fuel Cell Strategy Roadmap" official goal, it aims to build 160 filling stations and popularize 40000 hydrogen fuel cell car by 2021.

 

Since this year on March 6, Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Tokyo Gas Company and Japan's Policy Investment Bank and other 7 companies jointly set up a "Japanese Hydrogen Filling station Network Company", aimed at systematic construction of Hydrogen filling stations.

 

Japan take a high concentration on hydrogen fuel cell technology research and development and the infrastructure of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles which beneficial to the development of clear vehicles, about it in the future, we can wait to see.
