Fill the tank up, please! But with what? Electricity, hydrogen and electrofuel in the future check
The event series “Ranga Yogeshwar & ...” deals with the rapid
technological and social developments and their effects on our society.
It’s just as much about new ethical questions as it is about dealing
with our respective culturally shaped understandings of the world.
Electric drives are currently widespread and seem to be anecofriendly
and efficient option. Hydrogen drives are said to be quick torefuel and
able to cover long ranges. E-fuels, on the other hand, areconsidered to
be climate-neutral in production, but are currently still veryexpensive
at four euros per litre.Germany has set itself the goal of
taking a leading role inelectromobility. Accordingly, sales of electric
cars have increasedsignificantly, not least due to government incentives
such as the purchasepremium for this type of vehicle. At the same time,
investments are beingpoured into the research and development of
hydrogen technology; support fore-fuels, by contrast, is more restrained
due to their energy-intensiveproduction.Regardless of political
considerations, we want to discusson a scientific basis which of the
three propulsion technologies is a realisticoption for the cars of the
future. Take the opportunity to ask experts yourquestions and learn more
about the car of the future: are pure electric carsreally a better
solution than hydrogen-powered vehicles with fuel cells?
Chemist Maximilian Fichtner is Executive Director at Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) for Electrochemical Energy Storage. He is part of the core team
of a new European flagship project on battery research called
“BATTERY2030+” and scientific coordinator of several European research
projects on battery and hydrogen technology.
