Technology for future
FCCP overcomes existing barriers which are exhibited by battery electric cargo pedelecs by using hydrogen as an energy source and a small fuel cell as a converter. Thus, high performance cargo pedelecs can be designed which are suitable for professional applications.
Hence, a much broader roll out of cargo cycles in commercial applications can be realized in order to substitute conventional vehicles and achieve a sustainable last mile logistics distribution system.
Based on the hydrogen technology following advantages are given:
- Longer operating distance
- Short refueling time
- CO2- emission free
- Zero noise
- Usable in winter
Hydrogen is a clean energy carrier obtained, for example, by electrolysis of water. The conversion of hydrogen into electrical energy in a fuel cell
fuel cell, only water vapor is released. By using renewable energy, the H₂ is CO₂-neutral or “green.”
That means that hydrogen-powered electric bicycles have no adverse effect on the climate. What’s more, hydrogen is one of the elements that occur most frequently in nature and – unlike fossil fuels – is available in unlimited quantities.
Hydrogen drives, therefore, do not consume finite resources.
Overall, this makes hydrogen the perfect drive source for environmentally conscious customers who want emission-free mobility without restrictions.
