Hydrogen mobility remains a dream for now

Der Maxus Euniq 7 von SAIC auf einer Technikmesse in Shanghai: Chinesische Staatsbetriebe entdecken die Brennstoffzelle - mit Wasserstoff betriebene Autos.
Hardly play a role in reality: Hydrogen cars from Chinese manufacturer SAIC
For a long time, hydrogen mobility was considered pioneering. But the reality is different. Both hydrogen itself and the energy behind it are needed for other applications, not for cars.
Hydrogen will not play a role in individual mobility in the foreseeable future. Not even in China. The technology and infrastructure for battery-electric vehicles are too advanced for that. There are only significant market opportunities in the truck and bus sector. This is how Dirk Niemeier sums up the hydrogen market in the People's Republic of China. Niemeier is the Director of Strategy&, the strategy consultancy of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). The existing hydrogen is being used more sensibly elsewhere. This also applies to the vast amounts of energy needed to produce it.
