Shared Hydrogen Mobility

Who wants to drive a hydrogen vehicle (FCV) when there are not many fuel stations around, the vehicles are expensive and most hydrogen is fossil-based?

However, the opportunity is strong: hydrogen can be produced 100% sustainable and offers a great flexible storage solution for wind and solar energy. And we need both electric and hydrogen vehicles to get the highest possible speed in transitioning to zero-emission mobility.


Break-through: Collective production and use

We introduce a solution where neighborhood residents generate hydrogen collectively from the solar panels on their roof tops. 200 homes generate enough hydrogen to refuel 5 hydrogen vehicle every day.

Residents fuel FCV vehicles at home

Energy efficiency: use of excess heat for homes

The electrolyzer, needed to create hydrogen from solar energy, produces heat. This heat is fed back to the homes by means of hot water that is used for dishwashers, showers etc. Reusing heat increases hydrogen production efficiency.

Domestic roof-top solar produce hydrogen locally and homes reuse excess heat

Shared mobility makes FCV a viable choice

Car-sharing increases the utilization level of vehicles and lowers the cost for users. For many households, a community-based pool of shared FCV’s can at least replace the second family car, and even in some cases the first car.

Community cars powered by the community

A key driver for the success of green hydrogen in society is the possibility for consumers to participate in the use and production of it. With this proposition, residents produce the energy for their cars, thus maximizing the ROI of their solar panels and enjoying the pleasure of collectively creating a sustainable mobility solution.

New role for car dealerships to manage local community services

Chicken-and-egg in Hydrogen Passenger Cars

Residents always have a full tank at the start of their journey. An FCV can do 500km on a tank so user will not need to refuel on their way. At the same time, with this proposition we add new tank stations to the national pool, thus solving the chicken and egg problem of the FCV: no demand for FCV due to lack of stations; no investment for stations due to lack of FCV demand.

Shared hydrogen mobility creates value for key stakeholders:

  • Automotive OEMs: momentum for the selling and broader acceptance of FCV
  • Manufacturers of Electrolysers and filling-stations: new markets and momentum for local generation of hydrogen
  • Gas companies: access to, and commercializing of distributed, community-based green H2 production
  • Grid operators: solution for congestion reduction
  • Auto importers and dealerships: new value proposition for dealerships in the exploitation of car sharing services and green hydrogen sale
  • Local governments: more efficient use of passenger vehicles and reduced emissions


We invite business partners to participate in the realization of the shared hydrogen mobility proposition. Residential areas of major Dutch cities will be the first focus. Automotive OEM’s, importers, technology partners and other players in the H2 ecosystem are invited to share their interest via the form below

Our role: we will develop the proposition, work with local governments to select the neighborhood, build the partnerships and market the service to the residents.
