Zero Emissions Vehicles Market an Opportunity for Congress

There are two types of commercialized zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) available to consumers today, the fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) and the battery electric vehicle (BEV). Both types of vehicles support greenhouse gas reductions, improve local air quality, and reduce reliance on oil. Many automakers are now investing in fuel cells as an essential technology to create consumer-friendly zero-carbon transportation options.

Saving and Shaving: Fuel Cells in Materials Handling Reduce Peak Electric Demand and Power Outage Risk

Among the cost drivers of electricity usage in your materials handling facility, lift truck battery chargers could be among the biggest electricity consumers. Battery chargers can also drive up additional annual peak demand charges for your building. Electricity demand during peak periods may result in utility surcharges, with the additional risk of stretching grid capacity to the point of power outages or need for usage restrictions.

The 2015 Energy Feature: Forkliftaction Reviews Alternative Power Options for Use in Materials Handling

In the four years since the 2011 Forkliftaction News feature on alternative energy use in the material handling industry, fuel cell-powered electric forklifts have made significant inroads into warehouse, manufacturing, distribution and other facilities in the US because the benefits they offer are so compelling. It is one of the reasons NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG), manufacturer of Yale® and Hyster®  lift trucks, acquired Nuvera Fuel Cells in 2014. NMHG believes that the use of hydrogen in fuel cells is a winning combination that offers tremendous value to many of its customers.

Discover How Hydrogen and Natural Gas Are Good News for a Renewable Energy Future

A dramatic reduction in our country’s carbon footprint will need to rely on a specific convergence of three factors: Energy economics, energy infrastructure, and energy technologies. The U.S. is experiencing such a convergence, and it is positioning us for a clean energy boom.  Domestic natural gas production is rising and is expected to continue for decades to come, resulting in cleaner power generation, lower prices, and enhanced energy security.
