Fuel cell knowledge

The fuel cell consumes hydrogen, and the cost of consumption is the price of hydrogen consumption.

At present, the selling price of hydrogen in commercial hydrogen refueling stations in my country is between 30-120 yuan/kg (Shanghai Yilan hydrogen refueling station hydrogen price is 40-45 yuan/kg), calculated on the basis of a passenger car’s battery life of 100 kilometers per kilogram , And its cost is 30-120 yuan/100 kilometers.

   The cost of fuel cell itself is related to the output. Because foreign fuel cell vehicles are more mature than domestic ones, the cost is relatively low.

  According to calculations based on relevant data, when the output of fuel cells in foreign countries reaches 500,000 units, the cost can be reduced to 40 US dollars/kW. At present, due to the small output in China, the battery cost is between 10,000 and 15,000/kW.

   The infrastructure for fuel cell vehicles is a hydrogen refueling station. The construction cost of a hydrogen refueling station is related to its hydrogen refueling capacity. Generally speaking, the greater the hydrogen refueling capacity, the higher the overall investment price of the hydrogen refueling station.

  According to public information, the investment scale of domestic hydrogen refueling stations with a hydrogen supply capacity of 500kg/d is between 12 and 18 million.

  The cost of Nanhai Ruihui hydrogen refueling station is 15.5 million yuan, the cost of Foluo road hydrogen refueling station is 12.5 million yuan, and the cost of Hanlan Songgang Chantan Road hydrogen refueling station is 29.85 million yuan.

   At present, the highest construction price of hydrogen refueling stations in my country is the Shanghai Yilanjinshan hydrogen refueling station. This hydrogen refueling station is currently the world's largest hydrogen refueling station with a total investment of 55 million yuan.

  1. Hydrogen fuel cell VS lithium battery, who is the king?

  4. Why Might I Be Interested in a Fuel-Cell Vehicle?

    Automotive fuel cells are seen by many as the best bet for widespread replacement of internal combustion engines in the U.S. This is a country where cars and trucks tend to be big. Driving distances also tend to be longer than battery-electric cars can accommodate — or so many motorists think...

  5. Is Hydrogen Fuel Battery safe? How is it kept safe?

    The short answer is that hydrogen behaves differently from gasoline. But generally it is about as safe as the gasoline we now put in most vehicles' fuel tanks. In fact, the average gasoline tank holds three to four times the energy — and thus three to four times the explosive power — of the hydrogen tan...
