Using electricity to power cars, trucks and public transport is becoming the favoured solution to de-carbonising transport. There is an increasing range of options for battery powered electric vehicles, hybrid vehicles and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
There are many advantages to electric vehicles but there is no doubt that they create new challenges for fleet managers, energy providers and energy network operators. The transition to an electric vehicle future is a multi-dimensional challenge.
At Reverve, we have begun to address these challenges. We have helped public and private sector organisations to begin to address their e-mobiity challenges, to define the optimum approach and vehicle choices, to address infrastructure and management challenges and to identify the new skills and management tools needed.
We are now beginning to explore the implication of Hydrogen Mobility including the infrastructure needs, refuelling strategies, maintenance, operation and acceptance. We favour a piloting strategy to allow practical scenarios to reveal the real challenges of working with hydrogen. In advance of this, we are working to help define the policy and safety regimes that need to be in place to make hydrogen mobility a success as a complicity solution for e-mobility. We believe that hydrogen is well suited to domains where battery storage struggles to perform in terms of power and range.
