U.S. States Are Turbocharging Heavy-Duty Fuel Cell Mobility

To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, and achieve carbon neutrality, tremendous progress has been made in clean energy adoption in recent years, especially for light-duty vehicles. The focus continues to shift toward ambitious climate goals – particularly in the sectors that will have the most impact on meeting them – commercial and industrial vehicles.

Massachusetts (Nuvera headquarter’s home state) has joined 14 other states and the District of Columbia in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to increase the market for zero-emission medium- and heavy-duty vehicles (MHDVs). The MOU sets a goal for 100% zero-emission vehicle sales by 2050, and aims to electrify the transportation sector by promoting mass adoption of zero-emission technologies, including battery electric (BEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV), and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV).

The Electric Future Is Trucking Along

Advanced Clean Tech News’s latest webinar, “The Electric Future and the Messy Middle,” addressed The North American Council for Freight Efficiency’s (NACFE) recently released Guidance Report. The report dives into the future for today’s trucking fleets and the challenges that fleet operators face during the inevitable transition to zero-emission propulsion.

The trucking industry is at the start of significant expected changes in powertrains. The imperatives for reducing emissions from the transportation sector – the largest source of carbon emissions worldwide – are mounting, whether from regulatory actions or from the demands of community residents most directly impacted by trucks operating in their vicinity. Fleets can be configured with a growing array of low-carbon energy sources and propulsion technologies, including renewable natural gas and biofuels, diesel-electric hybrids, batteries, and not least, hydrogen fuel cells.

In pre-commercial trials, fuel cell trucks are showing promise as a one-to-one replacement for diesel-powered trucks – both in terms of vehicle performance and in operational characteristics.

Making Hydrogen Make Sense for Commercial and Industrial Vehicles

Matt Weig, Fuel Cell Engine Product Development Manager

As we launch the Nuvera® E-45 fuel cell engine for medium- and heavy-duty vehicle applications, we wanted to look back at how we arrived at this moment. Nuvera has been at the forefront of the fuel cell industry for over 20 years. Throughout that time, we have always believed that hydrogen represents the future of energy for mobility, and we have worked hard to develop unique technology that makes the use of hydrogen make financial and environmental sense for commercial operations. As governments around the world begin restricting the use of internal combustion engines and diesel fuel, it’s exciting to see how quickly the use of hydrogen fuel cells for zero-emission transportation has come to the forefront of consideration by fleet operators of all kinds.

Fuel Cell Industry Reaching its Stride

This past November, the Fuel Cell Seminar and Energy Exposition (FCS&EE) was back in full swing with a sense of excitement for the state of the industry. The Long Beach Convention Center was an excellent venue for showcasing the uses of fuel cells in some of the most demanding industrial and commercial applications, including several major projects at the San Pedro Bay Ports involving the replacement of diesel equipment with hydrogen fuel cells. 

This year, there was a major shift in the tenor of the event, with near-unanimous agreement regarding the viability of fuel cell electric vehicles across the spectrum of classes and uses. Numerous recent strides in the industry allowed participants to focus on how—and not if—fuel cells will become a foundational part of our clean energy future.

The Time for Fuel Cells Is Now

Unprecedented global demand for clean transportation systems is putting a spotlight on the fuel cell industry. It’s becoming clear that the possibilities for achieving widespread fuel cell vehicle are limitless. This is true for virtually every mode of transportation – commercial, industrial, light-duty – including non-road sectors such as marine, aviation and rail. As the fuel cell industry transforms and expands, it is positively impacting everything from environmental progress and sustainability to the well-being of communities to the bottom line of logistics companies, transit agencies and port operations.

In other words, there is a lot to celebrate! And it just so happens that now is the perfect time.

A Pivotal Moment in the Transportation Industry

Eleven cities in Germany are among the most recent to join Paris, Mexico City, Madrid and Athens to ban diesel engine vehicles. In the US, cities and states are setting ambitious goals to fight global warming. EU countries have agreed to cut truck and bus CO2 emissions 30% by 2030. Japan, Korea and China have all adopted aggressive regulatory policies for combustion engines.

In every sector, OEMs are electrifying vehicle powertrains. To achieve commercial success and to comply with expanding regulatory requirements, OEMs must offer customers zero-emission options that perform as well as – or better than – today’s vehicles do, and be as practical to own and operate.

Engines 2.0: A New and Novel Era for Motive Power

The role that hydrogen and fuel cells are playing in transforming the transportation sector was a major theme at several international gatherings in Vancouver, British Columbia in recent weeks. Vehicle OEMs, fuel cell suppliers, on- and off-road fleet operators and others gathered on May 22-24, 2019 for The Impulse Summit for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells, also known as f-cell + HFC.  This well-known conference and trade fair features speakers from around the world and showcases the latest developments in the fuel cell industry through technical panels, keynote addresses, product exhibitions and workshops.

At this year’s f-cell + HFC event in Canada, Nuvera co-hosted a workshop highlighting the use of fuel cells for seaports and shipping. As we have discussed in previous blogs, ports around the world are concentrated sources of greenhouse gas emissions and criteria pollutants. Not surprisingly, policy-makers, community and environmental groups, as well as port authorities themselves, are recognizing that ports can play a significant role in improving local air quality by reducing their use of diesel fuel – and by making their operations more efficient and less costly through equipment electrification.
