Hydrogen gains distance at Toyota: a Mirai travels 1,003 km with a single tank

Toyota is one of the few brands that has in its offer an electric model powered by hydrogen by fuel cell. This is the Mirai, a elegant coupe saloon which is currently for sale in Spain from 65,000 euros.The technology is expensive, but it cannot be denied that it is also efficient, since one unit of the Mirai has managed to exceed a thousand kilometers with its 5.6 kg hydrogen tank.The 1,003 zero-emission kilometers were covered on French public roads, south of Paris and through the Loir-et-Cher and Indre-et-Loire areas, and both distance and consumption were certified by an independent authority. Green hydrogen was used to break the record, with a average fuel consumption of 0.55 kg per 100 k...

Cummins, Iberdrola’s partner for hydrogen, bursts into Europe: the factory in Spain is just the starting point

Whoever arrives first has more business opportunity. And that's what the American has done Cummins. Your name should be noted correctly because the agreement you just signed with Iberdrola puts it at the center of the hydrogen industry's focus. Its objective is to enter the vast market yet to be exploited in Europe through Spain. And the United Kingdom would be the next, according to the president of the energy company, Ignacio Sánchez Galán, during the presentation of the agreement. The technology company plans to build somewhere in Guadalajara, in the Corredor del Henares area (as confirmed by sources familiar with Invertia), the largest electrolyzer factory in Europe and one of the largest in the world. It will generate 350 new jobs as production increases, and could be operational...

"There are too many unknowns and too many insurmountable problems," say the researchers. We are desperately looking for a way to make our cars less polluting by reducing dependence on fossil fuels. The auto industry already seems to have bet on electric cars, but in recent years an increasingly less respected voice has tried to divert attention to hydrogen cars, calling them more promising. Only recently have we seen how Toyota for its city of the futu...

The hydrogen roadmap in Spain: finally, a common country strategy

The Government approved the renewable roadmap in October 2020 with set objectives that reflect a clear commitment to decarbonization. We are facing a strategy that It will allow us to position ourselves at the same level as other countries that have been betting and investing in this green energy vector for a long time. For the first time, it seems that Spain is going to get on the train of this new green revolution without seeing him pass by as has happened on previous occasions. Investments valued at 8.9 billion euros are expected to be made, which will originate in the Recovery Plan that the Government has presented to Europe. It specifically mentions the development of green hydrogen in Spain. The Renewable Hydrogen Roadmap sets the following goals in 2030: - 4 GW of installed cap...
