Hydrogen trucks: coming to a motorway near you

The automotive sector has some ambitious decarbonisation targets to meet and it’s going to take a variety of technologies to get there.  Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), in particular, look set to be an important part of the sector’s future mix.

It’s an exciting technology which works by chemically reacting hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe, and oxygen.  There are no greenhouse gas emissions from an FCEV, with the only tailpipe product being water.

From a batteries point of view, FCEVs are often seen as very separate to hybrid and battery electric cars.  In fact, FCEVs need batteries too and the high-power cell we’re developing at AMTE Power will have an essential role to play in unlocking this clean fuel cell transition.  In an FCEV, batteries act as a buffer between the fuel cell system and the electric motor.  This means the fuel cell can run at a constant rate, maximising efficiency and range, while allowing drivers to vary their speed.

AMTE Power plc (LON:AMTE) is a recognised brand in the production of high-quality lithium-ion batteries across a range of markets including automotive, aerospace, defence, oil & gas and energy storage. They have been been producing cells for over 30 years at their factory in Scotland, which can trace its roots back to the birth of lithium-ion battery cell technology, first patented in the UK.
