Charlie Freese, Executive Director of Global HYDROTEC at General Motors, discussed at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Summit, similarities in the early adoption of cars to hydrogen fuel cells in addition to the drastic reduction in costs for fuel cells.

The cost of hydrogen fuel cells is dramatically decreasing says Freese, “You can see fuel cells are on a dramatic reduction in costs, basically coming down half of their cost in a single generation sometimes.”

With this, Freese drew correlations with former advanced propulsion inflection points, with an image of 1917 New York featuring a horse for mobility with a tram and car in the background presented to reference the novelty of the new technology when it was introduced.

Freese told the H2 View Virtual summit, “We’re sitting at a very similar point in time right now, we are at a new inflexion point and we’re moving into a world of electrification that seems pretty clear, but there are a lot of questions and there are a lot of challenges that remain.
