RV fuel cells have been hailed as the ideal energy source. Twelve years’ worth of advertising claims have been made. But only a handful things have appeared so far.
Part generator, part battery, fuel cells. To produce electricity, they combine hydrogen and oxygen. Fuel cells obtain hydrogen from fossil fuel because it is not generally available for purchase. Any of these will work. Currently, there are (roughly) three fuel cell brands that are appropriate for use in RVs.
The SFC system can power various devices, such as boats and remotely operated devices like sensors or data transfer equipment, in addition to RVs and caravans.
In the world of RVs, this ancient technology has seen some fascinating changes. Fuel cells would revolutionise technology because they are silent and offer pure emissions. Internal combustion engines are currently found in the majority of recreational vehicles.
Global fuel cell RV market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
A fuel-cell variant of Honda’s newest CR-V small SUV has been introduced. The CR-V FCEV, which will start being manufactured at the manufacturer’s Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Ohio in 2024, will have a fuel cell system as well as an externally rechargeable battery.
Honda won’t release more information on the new CR-V FCEV until later. Honda has not yet confirmed if it will sell the vehicle just in the USA or in other regions as well.
The CR-V will be introduced in Europe in 2023 with a plug-in hybrid drive as well as a full hybrid drive, which will be available for the first time. No BEV version exists.
It will be the first fuel cell vehicle produced in North America with an externally rechargeable battery, according to Honda.
Drivers will be able to “drive battery-electric in the city and enjoy the flexibility of rapid hydrogen refuelling for longer travels” thanks to this idea. Therefore, in contrast to other FC vehicles, the battery is probably going to be very big.
A small battery is frequently added to fuel cell systems in order to retain braking energy and provide selected boosts. But Honda still owes performance information.
