Keep on rolling – you’ll go far with hydrogen

Keep driving long distances, waste no time at charging stations, no payload losses, clean and quiet – all this is possible with hydrogen (H2). Fill up on the world’s smallest molecule in the usual time, publicly, and centrally. We are building and operating the necessary infrastructure for this in Germany and the GSA territories. Our network of public hydrogen filling station already comprises around 100 stations where we supply cars, vans, trucks, and buses with hydrogen.
Your public hydrogen filling station network

At all hydrogen filling stations, hydrogen vehicles can fill up to eight kilos of H2 at 700 bar. This corresponds to the amount needed by small commercial vehicles. At a growing number of locations, it is possible to refuel medium to heavy commercial vehicles (e.g. buses, trucks) with up to 40 kilograms of H2 at 350 bar.

We retrofit aging H2 stations, build new stations, or replace existing stations with alternative locations. In doing so, we make sure to recycle as many components as possible.

Hydrogen refuelling for heavy duty vehicles

Our H2 MOBILITY team has established the basic infrastructure for light- and medium-duty commercial vehicles in Germany. Now we are looking forward to making our contribution to emissions-free hydrogen-powered transport in the heavy-duty sector as well. At present, however, various technologies are still being developed for refuelling medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles.

In our PDF, we provide a comprehensive overview of the different refuelling technologies and their current state of development from an infrastructure perspective. It presents technical specifications of the individual hydrogen refuelling technologies, their advantages and disadvantages, the impact on the design and space requirements of hydrogen refuelling stations, as well as an initial assessment of their technological maturity and cost factors.

Want to know where the hydrogen stations are?

As a website and app, our H2.LIVE platform provides real-time information on the current status of all public hydrogen refuelling stations in Europe. See where the nearest station is and when it is open, and navigate directly to it. Hydrogen mobility for unlimited travel and transport.

TANK YOU VERY MUCH – Your hydrogen fuel card

The free H2 MOBILITY Card is a prerequisite for hydrogen refuelling at all public hydrogen filling stations in Germany.

You use the fuel card to authenticate yourself at the terminal. The card is also used to assign your refuelling data in the billing process. You can apply for your personal H2 MOBILITY Card in the H2.LIVE app or on the H2.LIVE website.

Expensive infrastructure?

Our goal: 100% green hydrogen in your tank

Our goal is to offer 100 % hydrogen from renewable sources. Overall, the share of green hydrogen in the grid average was 28 % in 2020. It comes from water electrolysis and from biomethane and biomethanol and is TÜV green certified.

The goal: to successively increase this share. 30 % of the H2 offered by H2 MOBILITY is a by-product from the chemical industry that would otherwise remain unused. The remaining 42 % is (still) obtained from natural gas.

And even if hydrogen from natural gas saves about a third of CO2 emissions compared to conventional fuels, our clear goal remains: green hydrogen, preferably with electrolysis, from renewable energies.

Who fills up at our stations?

Our hydrogen infrastructure enables emissions-free transport of goods and people. The ever-growing overview of all hydrogen vehicles that refuel at our H2 stations can be found on the H2.LIVE website. From passenger cars to buses and light commercial vehicles.

So you operate a public H2 filling station and would like to map it on H2.Live?

Looking to the future – Fuelling technologies, transport and storage concepts

The standards for hydrogen storage and refuelling for heavy-duty commercial vehicles are currently being discussed. The focus here: 40-tonne trucks that travel long distances, with an H2 requirement of more than 80 kilograms.

H2 MOBILITY is represented in the relevant decision-making bodies from the vehicle industry, logistics companies, gas network operators and politics, and contributes its practical arguments as the world’s largest operator of a hydrogen refuelling station network. In addition to refuelling technologies, various transport and storage concepts are discussed and developed here.

Even if deliveries by truck or swap trailers will suffice for the next few years, new concepts will have to be developed, adapted, and supplemented by others, e.g. on-site production, storage as liquid hydrogen, or connections to hydrogen pipeline networks.

Andreas Hornig: Offers Hyundai ix35 and Toyota Mirai in his car-sharing fleet
“No carsharing without!” This clear directive by Andreas Hornig, Managing Director of book-n-drive, refers to hydrogen-powered as well as battery-electric vehicles. It’s easy to try out new drive technologies in the car-sharing sector. And Hornig sees it as his duty to make this possible.
