h2e Power to develop India’s first Hydrogen 3-Wheeler using low cost & low-pressure storage technology

  • Partners with Canadian Hydrogen Storage Company ‘Hydrogen in Motion’
  • To develop a Zero Emission 3-Wheeler running on Hydrogen Fuel
  • To integrate low-cost, low pressure (50 Bar) Hydrogen Cylinder
  • Project part funded by GITA (An initiative by Department of Science &Technology and CII)

 Pune, June 4, 2021,: Riding high on its Green Hydrogen Production capability, Pune based h2e Power Systems (www.h2epower.net) is developing India’s first totally integrated Hydrogen Fuel Cell 3-Wheeler using PEM Fuel Cell & innovative Hydrogen Cylinders in collaboration with Canada based company ‘Hydrogen in Motion’ (www.hydrogeninmotion.com) under a Indo-Canadian program funded by GITA (A Public Private partnership between Technology Development Board, Department of Science & Technology, Government of India and CII) (www.gita.org.in).

The Hydrogen 3-wheeler concept targeted to inter-city public and goods transport integrating h2e’s Fuel Cell Technology with a low-cost and low pressure (50bar) Hydrogen Cylinder which is a path-breaking technology developed by Hydrogen in Motion, Canada. This innovative solution will bring a Zero Emission public transport vehicle, which would be competitive on costs with other technologies.

Talking about the development, Mr. Sidharth R Mayur, Founder & Managing Director, h2e Power Systems said, “India is on the cusp of a big e-Mobility revolution, and we are moving fast from fossil-based mobility to batteries and Hydrogen. We are already producing Green Hydrogen from our Electrolysers and now developing a 3-Wheeler concept for inter-city public and goods transport using Green Hydrogen. We are thankful to GITA for their support to this novel idea, which has promise to amplify the Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) concept in India. h2e, again, is at the forefront on the Hydrogen road map in India. There couldn’t be a better message to give to the world than a Zero Emission Vehicle on World Environment Day.”

Ms. Grace Quan, CEO Hydrogen In Motion said, “India is a natural market for our low pressure high density swappable Hydrogen tanks H2M technology can really be instrumental in Hydrogen Fuel Cell adoption and address India’s energy needs with a zero emission technology.  Our partnership with h2e is the beginning of a rollout of a diversity of products and applications in motive and stationary fields with our combined Hydrogen products”.

Mr. Amarnath Chakradeo, Co-Founder & Executive Director added, “The high-pressure storage tanks always added to the challenges on the use of Hydrogen in mobility, both on cost and integration. With the innovative metal Hydrite Cylinders, we will bring down the cost of storage substantially and provide a higher mileage to the 3-Wheeler owner & a better ROI”.

h2e now is India’s first company to have a product both in the stationary segment for power generation and to produce Green Hydrogen and also in the mobility sector. The 3-Wheeler running on Hydrogen presents a very interesting use case for Fuel Cells and Green Hydrogen.
