He has no doubts: "There is no future in hydrogen cars"

There is no longer a single open hydrogen station in Denmark. And stations can apparently remain closed.

Because if you ask Brian Vad Mathiesen, who is professor of energy planning at Aalborg University, there is no future in the hydrogen car. The professor tells Motor magazine that the development of hydrogen cars has stalled, and that hydrogen in passenger cars is associated with a number of difficulties. First and foremost, Brian Vad Mathiesen believes that hydrogen is ineffective as a propellant. Here, an ordinary electric car makes much more sense, the professor thinks. The energy loss in hydrogen for passenger cars is simply too great. On the other hand, the professor does not deny that heavy transport, such as planes and ships, which are not exactly able to run on electricity, can benefit from the hydrogen.READ ALSO: Happened on Monday – now 100 Danish taxis are totally useless But for cars and trucks, hydrogen is both dead and out of the question. However, not everyone agrees with the professor in Aalborg. The Danish Toyota importer, for example, refuses to remove the Mirai hydrogen car from the model range. At the same time, the importer calls the closure of the hydrogen stations 'a step backwards'.
