Fuel cell company Adelan talks to Genesis Energy about the breakthrough hydrogen economy and the future of fuel cells in New Zealand.
Published April 2022
Could hydrogen fuel cells help New Zealand get on the fast-track to achieving our carbon goals? Hydrogen fuel cells are an alternative to batteries in EVs. There are several advantages to hydrogen fuel cells: they don’t need charging, they don’t become degraded, and their only by-product is water. They’re more efficient than other energy sources – cars using hydrogen fuel cells can travel further than battery-powered EVs and can be refuelled more quickly.
But there are disadvantages, too. Hydrogen is difficult to store and transport, it’s expensive to produce, and it needs to be produced zero-carbon way or it’s still relying on fossil fuels. The upfront costs of establishing it as a useful everyday energy source are pretty high.
However, if we could overcome some of those hurdles, hydrogen fuel cells could be a major tool in global efforts to lower our carbon emissions.
