Frequently Asked Questions

What are the advantages of the hydrogen fuel cell?

Hydrogen fuel cells are known for their energy efficiency. They can convert hydrogen molecules directly to electricity.

One of the main advantages is the production of electricity without harmful emissions. When hydrogen reacts with oxygen in the air inside the cell, it only releases water. It is therefore a clean technology that does not contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.
Moreover, fuel cells can be used to power quiet, vibration-free vehicles.

Finally, cells perform well in extremely cold conditions, at high altitudes and in thin air, as illustrated by the endurance record set by a Hyundai Nexo during a 6-hour drive at an altitude of 2200 m in December 2021. "Hydrogen" versions of snowplough and snow groomers are also being developed to reduce the carbon footprint of winter sports resorts.
