Electriq~Global is committed to growing our team of approved joint venture partners working to build products that support our Electriq~Fuel.We’re working hard towards a solution that will give users: Twice the Range, Half the Price, and Zero Emissions.

Last week, we focused on the trucking industry. After speaking with a range of truck manufacturers, they all agree that Electriq~Fuel has a sweet spot when it comes to long-haul trucks. Below we’ve outlined the requirements of these vehicles, the limitations of other technology alternatives, and why our Electriq~Fuel is perfectly suited.

Twice the Range

Half the Price

Zero Emissions

Long-Haul Truck Specifications and Requirements

Daily Range: 800km

Fuel Tank: 2,500L

Efficiency: 1kg H2= 8km

Fuel Cell: 350kW

Usage Profile: Long periods of peak power (eg: up to 30 minutes) requiring a Fuel Cell that supports peak power and periods of cruising.

Potential Alternatives to Fossil Fuels

  • Battery – Not Appropriate, batteries do not support a vehicle of this size that requires such a large daily range
  • Compressed Hat 350bar – Not Appropriate, as the range would require a greater volume of fuel than the tank can support.
  • Compressed Hat 700bar – Not Appropriate, as the refuelling time would be too long for a vehicle of this size (refuelling rate is limited by the heat generated from the compression)

Electriq~Fuel advantages

  1. Range – Unlike batteries or compressed hydrogen, which are limited by their range and capacity, Electriq~Fuel can service a truck of this size and range requirements
  2. Refuelling time – Refuelling with Electriq~Fuel follows a similar time and technique to current standards for fossil-fuel-based fuels
  3. Limited infrastructure requirements – Refuelling stations are only required every 800km if travelling from point to point. Alternatively, refuelling stations can be built near each depot.
