Fuel Cells and E-Fuels

NovaCarts supports automotive manaufacturers to efficiently test alternative powertain technologies


The increasing scarcity of living space and rising real estate prices are driving more and more people out of the cities and into the surrounding regions. However, public transport connections are so far failing to keep up with this trend: high prices, delays, cancellations and overcrowding ensure that most commuters still drive to work by car. The resulting increase in pollutant emissions – coupled with the corresponding EU fines – is repeatedly leading to bans on cars, most recently in Stuttgart and Hamburg.

The Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) seems to be an environmentally friendly solution for short trips in large cities and metropolitan regions. Municipalities support the use of BEVs, for example through free parking, and numerous employers, shopping malls and retail chains now offer free charging points on their parking lots. As for range, however, conventional vehicles with combustion engines are still clearly superior to electric cars. In addition, the fact it takes up to two hours charging time to drive 400 km cannot compete with the convenience of five minutes to fill up the tank.

What other possibilities does the market offer if Battery Electric Vehicles are not yet able to meet all demands? MicroNova has taken a closer look at two trends: fuel cells and e-fuels.
