In an article for Automotive World, Navigant Research looks at the factors that could determine success
In the past 20 years, the fate of the fuel cell vehicle (FCV) has flip flopped between the cusp of a breakthrough and the end of the line. While its ultimate future may still be a mystery, in an article for Automotive World, Lisa Jerram, principal research analyst at Navigant Research, looked at the landscape for FCVs and the factors that might determine their success.
“Fuel cells are either in early commercialization for applications like passenger cars; in advanced demonstrations for applications such as fuel cell buses; or in early trials for truck applications,” Jerram wrote.
She added that for fuel cells to compete successfully in the transportation sector, manufacturers will also need to work to improve fuel cell durability and efficiency while finding innovative service models or technology configurations.
