HyGear, a specialist in on-site hydrogen generation and supply, announced it will cooperate with Nedstack Fuel Cell Technology, a leading player in the PEM fuel cell industry and Strukton Civiel Noord & Oost, an expert in rail and civil engineering works to develop a flexible hydrogen filling station with electric charging capabilities for off-grid locations.

While most hydrogen filling systems and (fast) battery charging systems are targeting densely populated area’s or highways, there are no solutions for rural areas. The main challenge in such areas is that the power grid is underdeveloped and not suitable for charging battery electric vehicles, let alone generating hydrogen from the grid by electrolysis. In these areas the gas network is usually adequate enough to provide the energy for both functions.
