Critics will not delay or stop the switch to 24/7 REs, lower cost H2 production/distribution, small and large FCEVs for ground, air and sea vehicles?
Too bad batteries performances have not progressed faster towards 800+ Wh/Kg required for extended range heavy trucks/buses and short range e-planes?
Good news for near future e-bus fleet growth and competiveness?
Would this also apply to battery packs performance?
Lower cost H2 production and storage together with lower cost more efficient FCs is what the near future H2 economy requires to compete with bio-fossil fuels, NPPS and batteries.
Cab design compatible with safer trucks and buses? Since this could reduce accidents with bicycles and pedestrians, it should be mandated for near future trucks/buses?
Needs a lot more range per charge?
Another hand to California and BYD to effectively replace polluting diesel trucks with clean running electric units. BYD is way ahead with mass production of affordable very productive electric buses and heavy trucks.
FCLEV trucks using clean H2 produced with local solar panels or wind turbines could be mandated in the mining industry (and tar sands operation) and on North American rail roads to replace diesel ICE using fossil fuel and reduce pollution and GHGs?
Interesting P4 (and P5) ADV projects by Toyota. If sucessful, this could lead to early P5 ADVs for taxis, shared e-mini-buses etc.
Interesting H2 storage alternative if it can be fine tuned?
It may be a matter of better management and automated applications on cell phones. If Amazon can manage a ONE DAY delivery for millions of articles, UBER (and similar organisations) could certainly manage shared rides with minimum delays and more so with automated driverless vehicles.
For once, I have to agree with SAEP. An improved circular economy would certainly reduce residues size while producing new products at a competitive cost?
Agree that it is a chicken/egg problem/solution. Both excess energy from REs for clean H2 production + H2 stations and FCEVs are required. All is coming in the next decade. By 2025/2030, clean lower cost H2 will be widely produced and used for ground, sea and air vehicles.
Seems o be a relatively low cost way to reduce fossil fuel usage, pollution and GHGs from large ships? Cleaner fuels may to the rest?
An excellent idea using up-to-date technology shared EV rides. This small EV may not be the ideal vehicle but is OK as a first trial run?
I fully agree that car/mini-bus sharing, when well organized, has a great future, specially with driverless e-vehicles. It could greatly reduce city cores trafic jams, pollution and GHGs.
A negative VAT (-15% to -45% of total purchase cost) with a $10K to $15K limit, instead of direct and indirect subsidies, on e-Golf and other BEVs could accelerate the switch to electrified vehicles?
A rare semi-major project completed on time and within budget. With another improved technology (and at an acceptable cost), residues could be further treated to extract remaining valuable elements.
Another hand to California to go ahead with Statewide programs to reduce pollution and GHGs when the Fed is inactive and/or not playing a major positive active role.
Good news for near future improved FCs mass production?
A good combo FC and batteries for all weather extended range large delivery vehicles. Over 500M such vehicles are required worldwide to greatly reduce pollution and GHGs in major cities. Adding local essential clean H2 stations from clean energy from REs would also benefit other FCEV users.
