Electromobility: Comparison of Infrastructure Costs for Alternative Drives

Jülich, 11 October 2017 – Alternative drives are currently sought after, not least due to the discussion about harmful nitrogen oxides. In particular, battery- and fuel-cell-driven vehicles could represent environmentally friendly alternatives. Both technologies are market-ready but require the development of a fuelling or charging infrastructure. But what are the costs of these two infrastructures? And how high would sales figures have to be before these costs would decrease? At the “f-cell” international trade fair, scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich have presented initial results from a study commissioned by H2 MOBILITY Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG. The study compares the concepts and costs of infrastructures for hydrogen cars and battery electric vehicles. The researchers also proposed further solutions at the EVS30 trade fair, which took place simultaneously.
