Hydrogen Mobility

In addition to battery electric mobility, hydrogen mobility represents a further alternative for reducing CO2 emissions. The hydrogen stored in the vehicle is converted into electricity by a fuel cell, which in turn drives an electric motor. If the hydrogen is produced from renewable energy by water electrolysis, it is a climate-neutral drive technology. Advantages over today's battery electric vehicles are fast refueling, high energy density, and long ranges. In addition to cars, hydrogen fuel cells are also used in trucks, ships, and trains – the required network of hydrogen refueling stations is constantly expanding. In this research area, we support the development of the technology and the expansion of the infrastructure in real-life projects. Among other things, we investigate:

  • the dimensioning of components,
  • the site selection according to requirements, and
  • the operation optimization of power-to-gas systems to achieve low cost and high network compatibility.
