Pune-based H2e Power to develop India’s first hydrogen three-wheeler, Energy News, ET EnergyWorld

New Delhi: Pune-based H2e Power Systems announced on Friday that it is developing India’s first fully integrated hydrogen fuel cell three-wheeler using a proton exchange membrane fuel cell and innovative hydrogen cylinders in collaboration with the Canadian company Hydrogen in Motion.

The company is part of the Poonawalla group and offers hybrid energy solutions within the green energy ecosystem.

He is developing these three-wheelers as part of an Indo-Canadian program funded by Gita, a public-private partnership between the Technology Development Council, the Department of Science and Technology, the Indian government and CII.

The concept would provide a zero-emission public transport vehicle, which would be cost-competitive with other technologies, the companies said in a joint press release.

“We are already producing green hydrogen from our electrolysers and are now developing a three-wheeler concept for public transport and intercity freight using green hydrogen,” said Sidharth R Mayur, Founder and Director General of H2e Power Systems.

The hydrogen three-wheeler concept targets intercity public transport and freight transport integrating fuel cell technology with low-cost, low-pressure storage technology.

“India is a natural market for our low pressure, high density, exchangeable hydrogen tanks. This technology can really play a pivotal role in the adoption of hydrogen fuel cells and meet India’s energy needs with zero emission technology, ”said Grace Quan, CEO of Hydrogen In Motion.

Amarnath Chakradeo, co-founder and executive director of h2e Power, said the innovative cylinders will reduce storage costs and provide higher mileage for the owner of the three-wheeled vehicle and a better return on investment.
