From a total cost of ownership (TCO) perspective, hydrogen heavy-duty trucks can become cost-competitive by 2027 if production volumes are ramped up swiftly, new study commissioned by Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) says.
Conducted by global consultancy Roland Berger, Fuel Cells Hydrogen Trucks: Heavy-Duty’s High Performance Green Solution carefully assesses the TCO elements and compares the hydrogen fuel cell option with diesel and other decarbonisation options (such as BEV and Catenary).
It reveals that fuel cell technology has a significant cost-down potential at scale.
The TCO analysis indicates a clear trend towards cost competitiveness of hydrogen fuel cell heavy-duty trucks by 2030 making the hydrogen fuel cell option even cheaper than diesel in several use cases.
