A Presentation by Mathiew Gardette
An overview of early markets and perspective on alternative transportation energy solutions.
- What is the current status of fuel cell technologies?
- What is the value proposition of H2-energy and fuel cells with regard to global energy economic challenges?
- Which are the early markets?
- How will those markets get the industry and general public ready for H2 mobility?
- How soon to come?
These questions naturally lead to a deeper look at the latest developments on the California roadmap for H2 fuel infrastructure as well as a discussion as to why the introduction of FCEVs in the automotive market is still controversial and whether FCEVs and BEVs (battery electric vehicles) complement one another or are competitors.
