Pune-based cleantech startup h2e Power Systems announced that it is developing the country’s first integrated hydrogen-powered three-wheeler. The project is in collaboration with Canadian firm Hydrogen in Motion and will integrate the firm’s low-cost and low-pressure hydrogen cylinder with h2e’s fuel cell technology. 

The hydrogen three-wheeler solution is targeted at inter-city public and goods transport and will bring a zero-emission public transport vehicle, which would be competitive on costs with other technologies, as per the company.

The project is being developed under an Indo-Canadian programme and is partly funded by GITA, a public-private joint initiative of the Department of Science & Technology and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).

Sidharth R Mayur, Founder and Managing Director of h2e, said, “We are already producing green hydrogen from our electrolysers and now developing a three-wheeler concept for inter-city public and goods transport using green hydrogen.” 

“India is a natural market for our low pressure high density swappable hydrogen tanks. This technology can really be instrumental in hydrogen fuel-cell adoption and address India’s energy needs with a zero-emission technology,” said Grace Quan, CEO Hydrogen In Motion.

With the latest move, h2e has become India’s first company to have a product both in the stationary segment for power generation and to produce green hydrogen, and also in the mobility sector, as per a release.

“The high-pressure storage tanks always added to the challenges on the use of hydrogen in mobility, both on cost and integration. With the innovative metal hydrite cylinders, we will bring down the cost of storage substantially and provide a higher mileage to the three-wheeler owner and a better return on investment,” Amarnath Chakradeo, Co-founder and Executive Director of h2e, said.

Founded in 2011, h2e Power Systems is part of the Poonwalla Group and offers hybrid power solutions within the green energy ecosystem.
