Stuttgart: As part of the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP), Germany’s first motorway hydrogen filling station was inaugurated here on Monday. It was a joint effort by Daimler, Linde and TOTAL.
State Secretary Dorothee Bar said: “Electric vehicles with hydrogen fuel cell drives produce no harmful emissions. They have a long range and can refuel in minutes. Politics, science and industry have worked together to bring hydrogen mobility to the brink of market entry. We are now increasingly tackling the development of infrastructure: by the end of 2015, 50 hydrogen filling stations will be available in metropolitan areas and along major roads. ”
The construction of a nationwide hydrogen infrastructure in Germany is accompanied by the planned market ramp-up of fuel cell cars from various manufacturers.
