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

Insights
Corporate developments

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.
