Why hydrogen?

HYGRO conducted various studies and has a thorough knowledge of the hydrogen market. The studies make clear that:

Competitive with a combustion engine

Fuel cell technology combined with an electric motor is able to compete with combustion engines when it comes to cost price and life span. Amongst other things, this is due to the fact that in the coming years several parties are starting to produce fuel cells on a large scale, which means that purchase costs go down. In a few years' time , due to the inherently higher efficiency of electric vehicles, it will be possible to sell hydrogen at the pump without any subsidies or exemptions from excise duties. We expect that the costs per driven kilometre for hydrogen will be lower than those for diesel.
