"The biggest challenge is that we have to make progress in a variety of areas in terms of the energy transition and climate protection, not only in the electricity market, but also in mobility, building heating and industry. Hydrogen as a universal energy storage is an indispensable building block."

How We Can Transition to a Low Carbon Future: An interview with Patrick Molloy of the Rocky Mountain Institute
"I think there's a preconception in a lot of places that fuel cells versus battery electric vehicles is the right conversation. I disagree with that. Fuel cell electric vehicles offer a very distinct set of advantages for certain use cases. In other cases, battery electric vehicles will be a very strong option. Our focus should be on removing internal combustion engines and moving toward a situation where we have a zero carbon solution for all of mobility."
Driving towards a greener future: Nikola’s freight expectations
“Our first pilot hydrogen station is going to be installed next year in Arizona, and that’s where Anheuser-Busch has a location,” affirms [Jesse] Schneider [executive vice president of Nikola Motor], “and in 2022, we’ll be spreading out to California – planning to ramp up to 10 stations to California and then expand beyond that.”
