A consortium of companies are collaborating on a project which aims to develop concepts for next-generation electric driver systems for flexible electric vehicles specifically adapted to the Nordic climate.
Led by research institute RISE, myFC, Inzile, APR Technologies, Abtery and Gränges will together design a system that provides both better comfort (efficient heating) and improved range through smart integration of fuel cell and battery in the vehicle.
The fuel cell contributes electrically as a range extender and in the heat management system to support heating of battery systems and cab during start-up and in cold conditions.
A feasibility study is now underway with a goal to utilise the by-product (heat) and thus increase the total energy utilisation.
