Hydrogen mobility in Austria starts with the public transport

With pollution-free fuel cell buses our desired destinations can be reached quickly, comfortably and with lower noise levels. The buses liberate Austrian cities from fine dust, bad smell, CO​2 a​nd nitric oxides.

the modular construction of hydrogen filling stations

The construction of hydrogen filling stations in Austria will be carried out in three steps -

Hydrogen eMobility AG with its cooperation partners takes responsibility for operational tasks including financing, network planning, permit, procurement, construction and business.

Hydrogen filling stations for buses in public transport

The strategic focus of the extensive filling stations’ network construction lies primarily on buses. This provides immediately applicable and significant possibilities for saving hundreds of thousands tons of carbon dioxide.

Hydrogen filling stations for logistic companies

In the second step a public expansion for vehicles in the field of distribution logistics is advised. Our customers are vehicle owners in public services and private delivery services.

Hydrogen filling stations for cars

Der finale Schritt im Ausbau eines österreichweiten Wasserstofftankstellen- Netzes liegt im Bereich der PKW’s. Tankstellen nicht nur an Autobahnen und in Ballungszentren, sondern überall dort wo es Wasserstoff-fahrzeuge gibt.

The power of hydrogen

The only emission from hydrogen-powered vehicles is steam. The energy conversion principle works as follows: Hydrogen combines with oxygen from the air in the fuel cell to produce water and electricity, with which it drives an electric motor. Hydrogen enables the usage of pollution-free vehicles that are capable of reaching long distances at short refuelling times. This makes them a great alternative to vehicles powered solely by electricity.

Hydrogen will contribute
to a better future,

help Austria reach its goals in regard to decarbonisation and climate at a faster pace,

store generated power to convert it into electricity again.

With hydrogen, Austria will be less dependent on fossil-fuel imports.

Hydrogen will open up possibilities for new business lines and a big part of net domestic product will remain in Austria.

The origin of hydrogen

Hydrogen is obtained through the electrolysis of water. Together with other renewable energy sources this can bring significant advantages: Solar PV farms and wind farms often produce surplus electricity and have to be disconnected from the grid if the energy is not consumed entirely. However, the surplus electricity can be used to generate hydrogen through electrolysis. A further method for producing hydrogen is through steam reforming.

Danke! Du hörst bald von uns!
Hoppla, etwas hat nicht funktioniert.
