Germany Is Going To Build Network of Hydrogen Filling Stations

charging stations  %tages Germany Is Going To Build Network of Hydrogen Filling StationsAs part of the National Innovation Program for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology, Germany’s federal government and industrial sector are going to build a hydrogen network of filling stations for fuel cell cars which will cost more than 40 million Euros. The final date of readiness will be in 2014, when hydrogen cars are expected to be widely available.

The Honda and Mercedes-Benz fuel cell cars is available for leasing in Germany and California. These cars handle like traditional gas-powered vehicles, with good torque for acceleration. And they have advantage of a hybrid or electric car in silence.

The hydrogen filling stations will be installed on the roads connecting German cities. This network will remove the fear of running www.rawvehicle.com out of fuel. These filling stations will also have option for present fuels like gas, diesel or hydrogen.

This agreement lays the foundation for a demand-driven supply of hydrogen as fuel for transport in Germany. By building the nation-wide network, Germany’s government and industry are jump-starting the progress of zero-emissions mobility using hydrogen.

TOTAL company as the active member of the agreement has done hydrogen mobility research for 10 years. Now company owns five hydrogen filling stations in Munich, Berlin and Hamburg. In this year TOTAL has partnered with the Brandenburg-based wind power company Enertrag to promote green hydrogen as ecology-friendly fuel.


This plan moves Germany in the list of the world’s most advanced and active countries which www.rawvehicle.com come to using alternative mobility solutions.

  1. I think about hydrogen powered cars, and soon to be able to fill up in the comfort of my garage! So I guess there is like a hydrogen tank which obviously stores hydrogen, while there is a special cell that generates electricity to power it, a battery to that stores electricity, then a PDU(Power Drive Unit) which conducts where the power goes, and it is all very quiet and very smooth and goes somewhere around 280 miles without refueling but is only available at special stations.

  2. I am also wondering if they can help us reduce weight of vehicles as well and give cars better handling characteristics.

  3. We always see news, documentaries, reports, stories, etc. about global warming warning us we must to do something soon , when the reality we are doing very bit about it. We are majority everywhere we go fighting against it but really we are a big minority for our governments. Presidents, Congress, and Lobbies are doing our life miserable, when they only matter is filling their packets with money. Look up the stock market going down so fast and the OPEC threatening us to raise oil prices. We have people ready to take action with new technology but always our governments ban them. I give you new technologies that are waiting to be just modify and put them out in the market like HYBRID SUV by AFS TRINITY that runs 150 MPG, GENEPAX is a prototype use water to extract hydrogen and move the vehicle, we have hydrogen technology and only is invested in California, electric cars that runs 220 miles per charge and many other you can see here on the site. Just like me billions of people are waiting to invest for our planet. We got to make Oil a choice among other types of energy; we are tired being manipulated by our governments. It would be a good idea that Yahoo, MSN, Google, Internet providers, broadcast stations, radio stations, news papers and all companies that would like to joint, forgetting just business to use their Home pages, advertising, and other strategies every single day until the real democracy afloat upon people playing blind against earth.

  4. We seem to be coralled into using electric cars to save the planet. I have reservations. Can someone tell me: 1. Where will all the extra electricity come from ? Isn’t generating worthwhile amounts of electricity harmful to the environment ? 2: If you have no garage or driveway where do you plug it in ? I can’t believe we’re going to have a recharge point per household. 3. Would you be breaking laws by running cables over pathways or out of windows ? 4. If someone falls over said cables presumably they can sue ? 5. If your neighbour unplugs your car to recharge his own and you can’t get to work are you allowed to beat them ? 6. Are charging points vandal proof ? 7. As GM have made a car that runs on salt water and California already has hydrogen filling stations would this be a better option ? I am quite cynical about this electric car rush from government. Have they thought it through ? I live in the suburbs of a city and there are two cars per household. We could never have enough charging points to go around. I don’t know the situation about urban car ownership in the USA but it’s common place in Britain. In parts of London there are more resident’s parking permits than properties which to me shows the depth of the problem. Many of these areas are multi-storey apartments and street recharge meters could never satisfy demand. This is true of most major towns and cities. Electrifying streets is fine (i.e. trams, trains and tubes) but what happens when you get out of the city ? Not all of those roads will have electricity. Biofuel is out. G14 countries have already said that using arable land to grow fuel is indefensible given the shortage of food elsewhere in the world and will not sanction it. I find yjat cynicism, particularly when directed at government, is a fantastic way of stimulating debate and is not necessarily negative or irritating.

  5. You can go on and on about cars powered by hydrogen, electricity and corn, but at the end of the day, oil companies are paying trillions to hold back these technologies.

  6. When will governments begin creating the infrastructure e.g. hydrogen filling stations. I wouldn’t like to be a Saudi Arabian when this happens lol start to get back to selling camels.

  7. Honda have invented a hydrogen powered car that runs exactly like a petrol car, i.e. pull in to a petrol station, fill up and go. The only output is water. Hydrogen is very easily to produce. These stations are very good green steps for us.

  8. Can you get hydrogen from normal petrol stations and if so how many sell hydrogen e.g. could you go travelling in a hydrogen powered vehicle and rely on finding a petrol station that supplies it? Also how would it work for electrically powered cars? Thanks for any info.

  9. There is no easy supply of hydrogen available. The most abundant supply of hydrogen is water, but it takes large amount of energy to separate the hydrogen from water. So what are we saving if we just use more energy in making hydrogen to use in cars. We also don’t have anyway to refill hydrogen cars. Hydrogen storage requires high pressures and will require a new filling station design. So first we need to find an source of hydrogen that doesn’t require the input of massive amounts of energy to obtain. Then there will have to be 100,000′s of new stations built to refuel these cars. I wouldn’t hold your breath just yet.

  10. If cars that run on other fuels (e.g. hydrogen, compressed air, etc.) take over the road, the current cars will be replaced with hydrogen stations by the government.

  11. My career is far too important for me to die right now so I’m wondering if it’s safe to convert my Lexus IS 200 2.0 24v to take hydrogen? Also are there many filling stations in the Norwich area who supply hydrogen? A mate of mine in the motor trade told me they were going to do helium but were afraid that most people would only buy it to make their voices go funny.

  12. I read in an old Wired Magazine that California is gearing up to create an infrastructure to allow cars that run on hydrogen to run on the road and have “filling stations” along the highway that runs north to south. How does the process of making energy from water for these cars work?

  13. I’ve been hearing about hydrogen cars since 2005, but why are there very little hydrogen filling stations and hydrogen cars

  14. What do they provide the vehicles with? LIQUID or GASEOUS HYDROGEN? and how is this hydrogen being transported to the stations? by direct pipelines or by trucks?

  16. OK, I used to be all gung-ho about ethanol, but I have heard too many bad things about it. For one, ethanol takes as much energy to produce as it releases. Also, it will be MORE expensive than gas, and pollute almost the same amount. Biodiesel seems to be a good one, but it may damage engines over long periods of time, as it contains water. So what is going to be the actual alternative energy that replaces gasoline? Heck, I may even drive one, as long as it meets my few but strict standards: 1. It has to cost less than, or at least no more than, gasoline. 2. It has to take no more time to fill up than gasoline. 3. My car can sacrifice no performance due to it. 4. My car can be no more expensive due to it. All-electric cars MAY work, but the problem will be having “energy-stations” around the country, and also charging a vehicle quickly, like filling it up with fuel. An overnight charge will be no good for someone on a cross-country trip. So, what will it be, and why? I asked this in politics because it will be a BIG issue in a few years.

  17. I heard on an AM radio station a few weeks back about a guy had just invented a water powered car that worked completely.

  18. Actually, an alternative to gasoline, diesel, or oil.Will humans ever really find a form of energy fuel that is not polluting, and that could be developed by humans efficiently without having to exploit nature? Solar energy cars don’t pollute, but are much slower. Electric cars are also slower, and if the electricity is gotten from coal, there goes the clean, nonpolluting source. Planes need too much power to fly, so forget about solar or electric. ( i can’t think of solar or electric for an 18-wheeler either). Hydrogen did sound good at first, but then came the issue of turning cars into bombs or how costly it is to mass-produce hydrogen. Will speed and power have to be sacrificed some day in order to stop pollution and natural resource exploitation? Can the Earth’s magnetism ever be used to move ourselves arround?
