Renewable hydrogen-ammonia 'energy and servicing' hubs
Electric vehicles are here, and they are already radically changing the way transport and transit systems are being planned. Whether powered by electricity from on-board batteries, or by electricity from on-board hydrogen fuel cells, EVs require new thinking about how vehicles will be refueled in low-carbon economies.
Autonomous ride-share vehicles have much greater usage (more than 70%) compared to private vehicles (around 4%). Countries in Asia are already assessing how autonomous vehicles can reduce congestion, improve transport efficiency, and break reliance on carbon-intensive, polluting fuels like diesel and gasoline.
Autonomous vehicles don't need traditional service stations to refuel - they will use intelligent systems to return 'back to base' for recharging (of batteries) and refueling (of hydrogen for fuel cells).
Renewable Hydrogen has developed a concept that addresses this need - a centralized energy and servicing hub powered by renewable ammonia, delivering battery-charging and hydrogen charging all from one carbon-free, renewable ammonia fuel reserve.
