Hydrogen for mobility in mountain areas
Steps are under way to meet the carbon neutrality target for ski resorts set for 2037. 52% of the carbon footprint of a day of skiing is linked to transport for accessing the resort, and 17% to infrastructure, equipment and services relating to tourist activities1.
Hydrogen solutions now offer the same properties as combustion engine solutions in terms of length of autonomy and power. To optimise the use of hydrogen, it is essential to offer H2 refueling solutions close to ski resorts.
Multi-purpose hydrogen stations
HRS can support the development of an ecosystem via a comprehensive offering including a hydrogen dispensing solution compatible with all types of hydrogen vehicles: snowploughs, snow groomers, snowmobiles, as well as urban vehicles at the resort: buses, tractors, commercial vehicles, wastecollection trucks…
The objective: to build a multi-mobility hydrogen ecosystem.
Hydrogen performs even better at altitude
In mountainous areas, fuel cell electric vehicles (hydrogen) offer the advantage of recycling the heat produced naturally by their fuel cell to maintain their performance at altitude.
HRS is also a partner to the first endurance record under extreme conditions set by a fuel cell electric vehicle. The Hyundai NEXO completed 190 laps of the ice circuit at Val Thorens in 6 hours, at an altitude of 2200 m with a single charge.
Advantages of hydrogen for collective mobility
Reduced environmental footprint
Hydrogen vehicles produce electricity by combining H2 and O2, and emit only water vapour. No CO2 is emitted during this process.
Reducing noise pollution
Hydrogen powered vehicles are very quiet for significantly lower noise pollution from your activities.
Hydrogen refueling reduces vehicle standstill times. The fueling protocol enables fast refueling of heavy-duty vehicles: ~15 minutes for a 30 kg tank.
Drive several hundred kilometres with full autonomy to ensure your continuity of service. The range of H2 vehicles is identical to that of combustion engine vehicles.
No need to change old habits!
To refuel, simply connect the pump to your vehicle. The refueling time is the same as that for combustion engine vehicles.
Reliability and safety
Our stations are manufactured on an industrial scale. Our dispensers comply with fueling protocol SAE J2601/ISO 19880-1 T30 and are confirmed by the CEP (Clean Energy Partnership)
