M2FCT consortium reveals advantages of hydrogen for US heavy-duty vehicle industry

The Million Mile Fuel Cell Truck Consortium (M2FCT), launched by the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technologies Office (HFTO), has highlighted just how instrumental hydrogen fuel cells could be in decarbonising heavy-duty vehicles.

In a recent study, the consortium said hydrogen fuel cells are well suited to the industry due to the faster refuelling times as well as the long driving range capabilities. Significantly, the fuel cells also contain a higher amount of energy-per unit mass than a lithium battery or diesel fuel.

To take advantage of this potential market, M2FCT will work on fuel cells for heavy-duty fuel cell trucks that can meet all of the efficiency, durability, and cost requirements of the trucking industry.
