Sweep Away Obsolete Concepts Of Common Energies


The targets for the decarbonisation of the mobility sector are challenging: 80 million emission-free vehicles on the roads by 2030; and a 70% reduction in the average carbon footprint per passenger per kilometre by 2050.

H2 is an “energy-carrier” that can be used as an emission-free fuel or as feedstock in Power-to-X processes. Pure hydrogen used in fuel cell drives offers a range of advantages over purely battery-powered vehicles, for example faster “refuelling”, greater ranges, and higher versatility. The infrastructure costs for nationwide H2-mobility in Germany are estimated to be 20% less than for purely battery-based e-mobility.

Most of the H2 is produced centrally and distributed by truck to fuelling stations. The vast majority of H2 is produced through steam methane reforming (SMR) of non-renewable natural gas. The future calls for “green hydrogen”, i.e. H2 produced through electrolysis of water using electricity from emission-free or low-emission renewable energy sources or through SMR of biomethane.

Who are the customers for AE Driven Solutions’ services?


  • Biogas plant operators interested in the idea of further refinement of biogas into H2 for fuelling stations – with the prospects of governmental funding and support for H2 infrastructure
  • Local fleet operators in municipalities with populations over 50,000 interested in on-site solutions for storage and dispensing of H2 at bus depots as fuel for local public transport and utility vehicles
  • Fuelling station operators interested in adding H2 to their choice of fuels, or in setting up dedicated H2 fuelling stations
  • Energy providers interested in integrating H2 into their portfolio as an energy store/carrier that can be produced using excess electricity from “green” energy sources


  • Utility vehicle and freight transportation operators interested in retro-fitting their existing vehicles with H2 range extenders to increase profitability
  • Towns and municipalities interested in integrating fuel cell technology into their municipal vehicles and stationary auxiliary aggregates
  • Rail transport operators interested in range extenders and for local and regional passenger and goods runs
