Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles offer zero emission transport. They have much greater range than battery vehicles so can fit into normal operations without disruption. Hydrogen powered zero emission busses, commercial vehicles and passenger cars are on the road now. We expect new vehicles to enter the market in the next couple of years.
Arcola Energy is at the forefront of development and deployment of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) in the UK and beyond. We are leading the introduction of FCEV’s into UK fleets, focusing on commercial vehicles initially with the Kangoo ZE H2. We are partners with a leading bus manufacturer in the development of zero emission buses. We are developing our own full drivetrain platform – tank to transmission – for commercial vehicles.
Arcola Energy Ltd and Optare Group Ltd today announce the launch of a hydrogen fuel cell double deck bus product for UK and international markets. With both bus and power system built in the UK, the team believes the new bus will make an important contribution to city air quality and a low carbon economic recovery.
Arcola has leading capability in modelling of hybrid powertrains in real world applications - an essential foundation for powertrain design. Our powertrain modelling allows partners and customers to define and interrogate fuel cell and battery sizing, heat recovery and power management strategies. We have collaborated with partners, including world-leading academics, to ensure our powertrain model is representative, verified and optimised.
