Fuel Cell and Battery Electric Vehicles - Significance for Electromobility

VDI Society Energy and Environment, VDI Society Automotive and Traffic Systems Technology, VDE Energy Technology Society

This VDI/VDE-study presents the current state of development of fuel cell-electric vehicles (FCEVs) and battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) within the framework of an interdisciplinary working group from universities, research institutions, and industry. By involving a wide range of expertise, the relevant technical, ecological, and economic aspects of both technologies can be appropriately evaluated. The analyses focus primarily on the passenger car sector. 

It is the opinion of the VDI and VDE expert group that fuel cell-based electric transportation can also make an important contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This assessment is shared by the railway operators and, in addition to cost aspects, a weighty reason for their decision to invest in fuel cell-driven trains, in addition to battery-operated ones. The aim of this study is to compare the advantages and disadvantages of these technologies as objectively as possible in order to provide representatives from politics, the media, and interested members of the public with the opportunity to obtain balanced information.
