Hydrogen mobility solutions continue to grow more diverse and, with myFC’s research into fuel cell technology, the company is creating a proof-of-concept for a hydrogen fuel cell bicycle, revealed today (Jan 10).
Creating a hydrogen fuel cell powered bicycle helps diversify the electric range of bikes and provides a new avenue for hydrogen to extend into the mobility market and become used widely by the general public.
In order to develop the hydrogen powered bike, myFC will develop the fuel cell system that will be capable of powering the bike.
myFC has described the technology as slim and able to be fitted into the frame of a normal electric bicycle, which provides a very flexible solution for the end customer.
Sebastian Weber, Chief Technology Officer for myFC, said, “The project has kept to the schedule, and we have shown that we can quickly develop new versions of our fuel cell technology, and adapt it for such specific areas.
“myFC has built up the application for electric bicycles with the new LAMINA™ fuel cell as a malleable building block, adapted to the conditions with extreme requirements in terms of fit and space efficiency that electric bicycles require.
“One of the advantages of myFC’s technology is that – unlike the less space and power adaptable stacked fuel cells – it can handle the thermal energy created in the fuel cells, without requiring cost-driving cooling systems.
“In the application, we have maximised the output power in relation to the air cooling.”
Making hydrogen happen
This March, H2 View will explore A Climate for Action and Investment in Europe in an immersive event that features some of the leading stakeholders and influencers in hydrogen, as well as a return to in-person networking and the opportunity to meet the Women in Hydrogen driving the agenda forward.
Taking place in Munich, Germany, confirmed speakers already include the Hydrogen Council, Hydrogen Europe, Clean Hydrogen Partnership, FiveT Hydrogen, Airbus, Nel and Michelin.
Further information on the event, agenda and confirmed speakers can be found here.
