Hyundai Expands Partnership with U.S. Govt to Research Hydrogen Fuel Cell Tech
Hyundai is expanding its partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and its support of the DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program. The company says it aims to ‘increase technical collaboration to better understand challenges and to collect and publish independently validated data from demonstrating fuel cell technologies and hydrogen infrastructure under real world operating conditions’.
As part of the partnership, Hyundai will provide the DOE with five NEXO fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) to help advance research and development of the technology. Data from the vehicles and infrastructure will be collected, analysed and published to identify additional research needs in areas such as durability, performance and reliability. Activities will also help support training and workforce development programs.
Hyundai will also contribute funding to install a small-scale hydrogen fueling station in the Washington, D.C. area.
