Hydrogen’s Promising Role in Heavy-Duty Vehicles


As OEMs and fleet operators look to accelerate the decarbonization of their product portfolios, suppliers are ramping up their efforts to provide clean hydrogen-fueled alternatives. Development programs and real-world demonstrations in a range of heavy-duty sectors increasingly are proving their efficacy. In this 60-minute Webinar from the editors of Truck & Off-Highway Engineering, industry experts will discuss the latest advancements for H2 combustion engines and fuel cells as well as integration and implementation challenges for both on- and off-highway vehicles.

Topics include:

  • Overview of fuel cell engines and markets
  • Engines for diverse applications
  • The often-overlooked key to successful fuel cell adoption: reliability
  • Global H2-ICE market development
  • Comparison of H2-ICE with other zero-CO2 powertrains
  • Real-world use cases
  • Applied H2-ICE technologies

An audience Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
