Not in that article. but as Japan is one of the countries pushing them, and they have no fossil-fuels to speak of, do you think that the need for sustainably-produced H2 isn't obvious to them?WetEV wrote: ↑Mon Sep 23, 2019 8:28 pmNotice that the ratio between sustainably produced electric power and H2 isn't mentioned.

Maybe even long range trucking. And cars are a cheap test platform for development. But put the hydrogen car up there with the flying car. You can build a few, but not practical.
H2 FCEVs are practical; what they're not at the moment is affordable. The Nexo, with a 380 mile range all of which can be routinely used without degradation, is certainly as practical as an ICE, given a similar level of fueling infrastructure and affordable fuel. But it and its fuel are still too expensive. FCEVs will continue to see price reductions due to economies of scale and technical advances, so the main hold-up to making FCEVs practical is making the cost of sustainably-produced H2 competitive, then providing it in the necessary amounts.
