Hydrogen charging stations coming to BC
Published 11:13 PDT, Thu June 25, 2020
The province is funding new fuelling stations for hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles.
Hydrogen fuelling takes just three to five minutes for an average-sized tank. The range of light-duty hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles is 600 kilometres.
This is part of an effort to transition to cleaner energy solutions to meet 2030 to 2050 greenhouse gas reduction targets. The first station opens this week in North Vancouver, with several more planned to open by the end of 2021.
Unlike cars and trucks with internal combustion engines and gasoline tanks, hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicles have a fuel cell that combines hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity, which runs an electric motor. The technology is safe and has existed since the 1960s, but adoption as a means of transportation is relatively new.
