Hyundai motor advances hydrogen strategy with export of fuel cell systems to Europe

HyundaiMotor'sFuelCellSystem(2)The on-going development of new technologies such as the hydrogen fuel cell could reap great benefits to transport, but also to other industries

Hyundai Motor Company in Korean has begun shipping its proprietary fuel cell system to Europe for use by non-automotive companies including a Swiss hydrogen solution firm, GRZ Technologies.

The problem with implementing fuel cells has been the need for large tanks to hold enough hydrogen

GRZ has the technology to store about five to ten times more hydrogen than before, with a pressure lower than 30 bar, which is significantly lower than the storage pressure of a normal hydrogen tank, 200 to 500 bar. It is expected that this technology will be used in various ways through cooperation between the two companies in the future.

Similar to batteries, stationary fuel cells may help provide energy in high demand periods.

What followed were various positions including being seconded to a government think-tank for the planning of transport firstly in Sydney and then for the whole of NSW. After working with the NRMA and as a consultant he moved to being an independent writer and commentator on the broader areas of transport and the more specific areas of the cars we drive. His half hour motoring program “Overdrive” has been described as an “informed, humorous and irreverent look at motoring and transport from Australia and overseas”. It is heard on 22 stations across Australia. He does weekly interviews with several ABC radio stations and is also heard on commercial radio in Sydney.
