Is it Possible to Drive in a Hydrogen Car Across Europe?


REN Talk “Hydrogen Challenge” with Mortimer Schulz, MSc BA

On March 03, 2017, Mortimer Schulz (founder and owner of solutions in energy e.U.; graduate of the MSc program Renewable Energy Systems, Class 2011-2013) enabled an  insightful behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world of hydrogen fuel cell cars. Amongst others Mortimer Schulz talked about his experience in pursuing a journey in a fuel cell vehicle with a limited number of hydrogen refuelling stations along the way.

After testing CNG, Pure Electric and Hybrid cars, Hydrogen was the next logical step. The last journey with a Hyundai Tucson ix35 FCEV (fuel cell electric vehicle) led him from Bergen, Norway, via Denmark, Germany and Austria to Bolzano, Italy with a total distance of 2,316 km. 
To sum it up in 3 minutes >>

Conclusion: With good planning and taking into account all energetic, ecological and economic aspects of hydrogen, it is possible to go across Europe.

In addition to electric cars, vehicles with hydrogen propulsion have been an environmental hope in the automotive market for years because they do not produce CO2. Hydrogen is fueled, and together with oxygen electricity is produced for the drive. In the end only water remains. In proof thereof, Mortimer started a self-experiment and drunk a glass of such water. >>

After the talk the guests had the opportunity to discuss and network over some drinks and snacks.
