Hyzon Motors is continuing to produce the impressive hydrogen-powered hydrogen trucks, however, is also taking initiative to ensure their usability. Having a strong partnership with New Plymouth-based Hiringa Energy has bred the opportunity to develop a refueling network in New Zealand. Work has already commenced on developing a functional hydrogen refueling network that is green.
New Zealand has an abundance of renewable energy. From this energy, green hydrogen can be created. This green hydrogen would then be used to power the Hyzon Motors trucks on their routes. Hyzon Motors has the goal of putting 100,000 trucks on the street by 2030, and solving the issue of hydrogen charging infrastructure is certainly a good way to solidify that goal.
Auto Trendy’s take:
Using New Zealand’s renewable energy sources to create green hydrogen ensures the creation and use of hydrogen with very little emissions. Being that Hyzon Motors produces hydrogen-powered trucks, the main challenge is likely the lack of charging infrastructure. Creating this infrastructure will only solidify the company and will likely gain it more customers – if not from purchasing trucks, then from purchasing hydrogen.
