NELToyota’s hydrogen fuel cell trucks are now moving goods

Nå er det virkelig i gang her folkens..
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Toyota’s hydrogen fuel cell trucks are now moving goods around the Port of LA.

A concept version of Toyota’s hydrogen fuel cell truck is running short-haul drayage routes at the Port of Los Angeles as part of a feasibility study, which figures in to the port’s efforts to reduce harmful emissions.

The truck will move goods from select Port of LA and Long Beach terminals to surrounding rail yards and warehouses for distribution. Toyota estimates the vehicle’s daily trips will total around 200 miles — short, frequent route patterns designed to test the duty-cycle capabilities of the fuel cell system. As the study progresses, longer haul routes will be introduced.

DAILY TRIPS WILL TOTAL AROUND 200 MILES
Toyota unveiled its plan to build a fleet of heavy-duty, zero-emission, hydrogen fuel cell trucks last April. The concept truck generates more than 670 horsepower and 1,325 pound-feet of torque from two Mirai fuel cell stacks and a 12kWh battery. Its gross combined weight capacity is 80,000 pounds.

Hydrogen fuel cells — which use compressed hydrogen as their fuel and release only water vapor as an emission — have been in development for decades, but only recently have they attained performance and range numbers good enough to replace an average driver's gasoline-powered car.

That said, hydrogen hasn’t taken off as a propulsion technology due to severe shortage in fueling stations. Experts predict that commercial vehicles, like trucks and forklifts, could benefit more from hydrogen, thanks to access to centralized, industrial fueling stations at ports or warehouses.

Toyota has more experience with fuel cell vehicles than most automakers. The automaker began selling its hydrogen-powered Mirai sedan in the US in 2015, but recent reports suggest the company has only sold several hundred units. Toyota has said it plans to sell buses powered by hydrogen fuel cells in Tokyo this year, in time for the 2020 Summer Olympics.

And Toyota isn’t alone in pursuing zero-emission big rigs. Nikola Motor Company recently unveiled a huge class 8 truck that's powered by hydrogen fuel cells. The Salt Lake City-based startup claims its H2-powered truck will have an operational range of as much as 1,200 miles when it's released in 2020.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk, who has called hydrogen power “incredibly dumb,” “extremely silly,” “mind-bogglingly stupid,” and most succinctly, “bullshit,” will be unveiling an electric battery-powered semi truck in November.

Ein Netz von Wasserstofftankstellen ist langfristig günstiger als eine dichte Ladesäulen-Infrastruktur. Das gilt laut einer Studie des Forschungszentrums Jülich aber erst ab einer Zahl von rund zehn Millionen Brennstoffzellenautos in Deutschland. Bis zu diesem Punkt – der immerhin einem Anteil von 25 Prozent am Pkw-Gesamtmarkt entspräche – wäre die Investition in die Energieversorgung von batterieelektrischen Autos der billigere Weg.

Was eine Wasserstoff-Infrastruktur in der Anlaufphase teuer macht sind der Studie zufolge vor allem hohe Investitionen in die nachhaltige Produktion von Wasserstoff sowie in die Lagerung des Gases. Sind diese Probleme gelöst, ist ein Wasserstoffnetz vergleichsweise günstig, weil auf herkömmliche, leicht modifizierte Tankstellen zurückgegriffen werden kann. Zum Langstreckentransport würde sich das bestehende Erdgasnetz eignen. Für mehr als zehn Millionen batteriebetriebene E-Autos wären hingegen unzählige Ladesäulen und ein verbessertes Stromnetz nötig.

Die Verfasser der Studie wollen Batterie- und Wasserstoffautos allerdings nicht in Konkurrenz setzen. Beide Technologien seien für einen emissionsfreien Verkehr unverzichtbar. Nicht zuletzt, weil sich Wasserstoff als Speichermedium für überschüssigen Strom aus erneuerbaren Energien eignet. In Auftrag gegeben wurde die Untersuchung von dem Wasserstoff-Zusammenschluss "H2 Mobility", zu dem neben dem Autohersteller Daimler auch die Mineralölkonzerne Shell, ÖMV und Total gehören.

Oljegiganten Shell kjøper elbillader-produsent
3 timer siden · Sigrid Moe
Royal Dutch Shell avslører torsdag at de har inngått en avtale om å kjøpe NewMotion, skriver CNN.
NewMotion er en av Europas største produsenter av elbilladere, og er spesialisert på å omgjøre parkeringsplasser til ladestasjoner.
Det nederlandske selskapet har over 30.000 ladestasjoner i Europa.
Planen er at NewMotion skal drive parallelt med Shells prosjekt med å rulle ut ladeplasser.
Shell installerer elbilladeplasser i Storbritannia, Nederland, Norge og på Filippinene.

El-bil ladere er nok ikke det dårligste man kan investere i på kort sikt med så mange el-biler som er solgt og selges inntil hydrogen spiser seg innpå.
Vi er bare i startfasen når det gjelder hydrogen til person-bil segmentet, men det kommer for fullt, noe i inneværende år, og med større tyngde i 2018..
Som du sikkert har lagt merke til, så har flere bilprodusenter nå fått øynene opp for Hydrogen/el-hybrider.

Er dere klar over at NEL også har en fair sjanse til å bli involvert i Toyota sitt tungtransport, hydrogen-program..??
