EDITORIAL – Refueling infrastructure, government support still insufficient for fuel cell technology to gain significant traction

Circular Economy & Remanufacturing

Automakers are announcing investments on fuel cell vehicles, but the technology is not likely to catch up with battery-powered vehicle any time soon due to lack of refueling infrastructure, industry collaboration and policy support

Though both battery electric vehicles (BEV) and fuel-cell electric vehicles (FCEV) are expected to be popular zero-emission technologies in the long term, the former is expected to gain more market share relatively in the near term on the back of factors such as wider government-industry collaboration, falling cost of battery, increasing driving range, expanding public charging infrastructure and growing production.
