Hybrid electric-hydrogen retrofitting involves replacing a vehicle’s internal combustion engine with an electric motor powered by a battery, which in turn is powered by a hydrogen-powered fuel cell. The hydrogen provides the energy needed for greater range, while the medium-capacity battery provides a combination of power and performance. The capacity of the hydrogen tank determines the range of the whole vehicle
This type of retrofit is relevant for heavy vehicles – passenger transport, freight transport, off-road – where efficiency is largely based on range. Buses, trucks and construction vehicles have a sufficiently high intrinsic value to justify the investment in an electric-hydrogen retrofit. The conversion extends their life and allows them to continue to operate at controlled costs, without loss of performance or payload.
