Securing Hydrogen’s Role in a Decarbonized Future
Green Energy • Clean Air
New Day Hydrogen is developing the hydrogen transportation market starting in Colorado
To DRIVE towards zero-emission transportation,
Colorado needs both battery and hydrogen Electric Vehicles (EVs).
Protecting our climate and our economy demands a transition to renewable energy. For transportation, this means moving to emission-free electric buses, trucks, and cars -- all of which may be powered by either batteries or hydrogen. Achieving meaningful decarbonization of transportation will require using both approaches.
Although today's consumers may be more familiar with battery EVs, hydrogen EVs offer fleet owners and drivers similar performance, yet with the the same convenience as gas or diesel fuels. Additionally, hydrogen EVs can provide this experience for vehicles of all sizes, ranges, and uses -- including cold weather.
Specifically, hydrogen EVs offer:
Range unaffected by temperature
Light, abundant fuel for large vehicles & RVs
Full range with heavy loads or towing
With significant hydrogen development and planning already underway in California and along the Northeast Coast, Colorado is conveniently located at an approximate midpoint. Colorado also boasts the largest regional population center in the mountain states as well as three interstate highways identified as crucial to national hydrogen roadmaps. Next, as a top-tier state for renewable energy growth, Colorado's business and political environment favor adoption of emerging approaches. Colorado passed the ZEV Regulation which takes effect with the 2023 model year giving vehicle makers incentive to offer fuel cell electric vehicles. Low electric rates for EVs make hydrogen competitive with gasoline. And finally, Colorado's topography and seasonal cold weather demand adding hydrogen to the EV mix.
