Fuel cell electric car drivers:
We’ve added a new status symbol to the Station Operational Status System (SOSS) to help you better manage your time when you are fueling your Honda Clarity, Hyundai NEXO or Toyota Mirai.
We’ve added an hourglass symbol to let you know when the station is in the refresh process. Previously, when a station was in this refresh process, it appeared on SOSS that the station was in limited mode (yellow triangle symbol) or offline (red square symbol). These moments created frustrations for drivers.
Today, the European Union adopted strategies for energy system integration and hydrogen, paving the way “towards a more efficient and interconnected energy sector, driven by the twin goals of a cleaner planet and a stronger economy.” In particular, the hydrogen strategy reflects the need and opportunity for countries and regions across the EU to collaborate on development and benefits from the expanding hydrogen economy. This coordinated approach will enable hydrogen integration activities to address needs and add value locally, while simultaneously creating a more resilient, durable and effective energy system—utilizing renewable hydrogen and electricity—across Europe.

Up to 50% cost reduction appears achievable within this decade as scale up accelerates
Brussels, 20 January 2020 – A new report published today by the Hydrogen Council, Path to Hydrogen Competitiveness: A Cost Perspective, shows that the cost of hydrogen solutions will fall sharply within the next decade, sooner than previously expected. As scale up of hydrogen production, distribution, as well as of equipment and component manufacturing continues, cost is projected to decrease by up to 50% by 2030 for a wide range of applications, making hydrogen competitive with other low-carbon alternatives and, in some cases, even conventional options.
