ULEMCo – Hydrogen Extended Range Powertrain (HyER Power)
Developing a net-zero carbon emission hydrogen fuel cell range extender for prototype ambulances, fire engines and road sweepers
Led by ULEMCo, the project will develop and test net-zero carbon emission hydrogen fuel cell range extenders for electric drivetrains for use in a series of ‘world-first’ special purpose EV vehicle solutions, including; ambulances, fire engines and HGV road sweepers.
Accelerating the transition to net-zero carbon emission mobility
- Taking the learning from its ZERRO Ambulance tested prototype, displayed at COP26, and creating a toolkit and ‘plug-and-play’ set of component modules
- Development of the Toyota Gen 2 Mirai Fuel Cell into a flexible power module package to meet the duty-cycle needs for net-zero carbon emission specialty vehicles
- Oxfordshire County Council will be involved in fleet trials, supporting the project to better understand the use cases for this technology
- Total project value £7.85 million, with £3.92 million funded through the APC.
