EU defines renewable hydrogen

After a long wait, the EU Commission has presented a definition for renewable hydrogen. In it, the expansion of electrolysis capacity is closely linked to the expansion of renewable energies through wind and solar. In France and Sweden, hydrogen produced from nuclear power is also considered renewable.


Electrifying heavy-duty transport is still an enormous challenge due to the high weight and also the air resistance. The "Battery Electric Truck with H2 Range-Extender" (BETH2REX) project therefore aims to implement a completely new electric vehicle concept. The aim is to build five truck prototypes with battery-electric drive and fuel cell range extender.
