Battery or Fuel Cell?

Jülich researchers calculate cost of infrastructure expansion

Jülich, 30 January 2018 – The future of mobility is electric. But it is still unclear what technology will win the race under the bonnet: batteries, which have to be connected to a charging station at regular intervals, or fuel cells, which require hydrogen from filling stations. The costs of the relevant infrastructures depend heavily on how many vehicles have to be supplied. A comparison conducted by experts from Forschungszentrum Jülich shows that the development of a hydrogen infrastructure is cheaper if several million vehicles or more have to be supplied. Both technologies are necessary, however, in order to make the transformation of the German mobility sector a success.
