Researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC) have developed a hydrogen supply roadmap for British Columbia (BC), providing analysis on the adoption of zero-emission, hydrogen-powered vehicles.
The study analyses the infrastructure needed to support hydrogen vehicles across BC. In the roadmap, UBC researchers recommend a refuelling infrastructure extending from Prince George in the north to Kamloops and Vancouver in the south and Victoria in the west.
“Hydrogen-powered vehicles are a strong alternative to battery electric vehicles, which don’t always comply with fast-refuelling, long-distance travel or cold weather requirements,” said lead author, Hoda Talebain, a PhD candidate in the Mechanical Engineering Department at UBC.
“We believe we have created the most comprehensive model for hydrogen adoption in a region like BC, where demand is still low for these types of vehicles.”
