Toyota to Assemble Fuel Cell Modules at Kentucky Plant in 2023
Publish Date: 8/25/2021

The dual fuel cell modules, which are a key component of an overall FC kit, weigh approximately 1,400 pounds and can deliver up to 160kW of continuous power. The FC kit also includes a high voltage battery, electric motors, transmission and hydrogen storage assembly from top-tier suppliers. Toyota will also offer its powertrain integration expertise that will help truck manufacturers adapt these emissions-free drivetrain systems to a wide variety of applications in the heavy-duty trucking sector.

Hydrogen could fill multiple gaps in the US energy system, but will energy regulations allow it to? Experts say green hydrogen will require a regulatory framework unlike any other in the energy industry.
Publish Date: 8/17/2021

"One of the things that gets lost when we have a conversation about the grid, is once the hydrogen is available, it has all this utility outside the power grid," Edwards said. "A grid operator managing a hydrogen storage facility doesn't have to sell it as electricity to go back into the grid. ... That is one of the places hydrogen has this strength of flexibility, but it means the regulatory framework needs to be flexible in that same sense."

California Fuel Cell Partnership Envisions 70,000 Heavy-Duty Fuel Cell Electric Trucks Supported by 200 Hydrogen Stations in-State by 2035
Publish Date: 8/3/2021

"Getting to a zero-emission future requires the partnership of government and industry, and the utilization of every tool at our disposal," said Jerome Gregeois, Director Commercial Vehicles Development at Hyundai-Kia and chair of the CaFCP board of directors. "At Hyundai-Kia, we know that battery and fuel cell electric technologies are needed to meet the diverse needs of our customers."

"The successful rollout of heavy-duty, zero-emission trucks requires the interplay of several key elements. In the case of FCETs, that includes synchronizing vehicle rollout with hydrogen fueling infrastructure, and renewable and zero-carbon hydrogen production," said Joe Cappello, CEO of Iwatani Corporation of America and vice chair of CaFCP.

"California has set aggressive goals to achieve zero-emission fleets across vehicle categories, including cars, buses, and trucks," said Bill Elrick, executive director of CaFCP.  "We can only achieve these goals through collaboration between government and private industry, and policies that promote and attract investment. The time to act – and invest – is now, if we intend to transition quickly and successfully to a self-sustaining market."
