In order to meet the increasing demand for hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), manufacturers need to scalable up quickly in terms of resources, factory extension, and procurement efficiency. However, supply-chain challenges remain a major obstacle for the production of both repowered and new vehicles.

In order to supply fleets with enough hydrogen fuel cell systems, manufacturers will need to expand their factories and improve their procurement efficiency quickly.

In the article “Emerson supports scalability of fuel cell systems” by Akilah Doyle explores why hydrogen fuel cell systems have the potential for exponential growth in carbon-neutral transport, and how scalability depends on safe and efficient operation that complies with high regulatory standards.

…It is critical that fuel cell technology safely, reliably, and efficiently controls the flow of the hydrogen fuel within FCEVs.

Why Fuel Cell Systems?

Hydrogen fuel cell systems offer a clean and efficient way to power electric vehicles, with the added benefit of being completely carbon-neutral.

FCEVs also have the potential to be more scalable than BEVs. Unlike batteries, which need to be replaced every few years, fuel cells have a long service life.

…To produce enough hydrogen fuel cell systems to supply fleets, manufacturers need to quickly scale up in terms of resources, factory extension and procurement efficiency. One way OEMs can achieve this is by working closely with supplier partners that have successfully adapted their products as needs have grown or changed.

Scalability Challenges

Despite the advantages that fuel cells offer, there are still several challenges that need to be addressed in order to scale up production. Supply-chain issues remain a major challenge for the production of both re-powered and new vehicles. Getting chassis has been difficult, and many components are in short supply.

In order to overcome these challenges, Emerson is committed to helping OEMs and suppliers operate safely and efficiently while complying with high regulatory standards. Our goal is to provide long fuel-cell life and reduced downtime so that manufacturers can focus on scaling up production to meet the demand for FCEVs.

…The good news is there are proven ways to scale up production for hydrogen fuel cell technology, as well as available solutions that can improve system safety, reliability, and efficiency.

The potential for hydrogen fuel cell systems and FCEV trucks is great, but the transition will not be instantaneous. By selecting the right technologies, processes, and partners, we can make meaningful progress now and reduce risk while launching the fleets of the future.
