The car driven by hydrogen fuel cell it seems that little by little it is waking up and will be launched to the market. Many brands are seeing this form of energy as a bet future and therefore are preparing their prototypes and models. This career accelerated when Toyota launched the Mirai. Since that time, brands such as Honda, Mercedes-Benz (Daimler AG), BMW and General Motors (supported by the army of the united States) are putting the final touches to their vehicles powered with hydrogen.
Toyota Mirai represents a very important opportunity for hydrogen, since it opens the doors to its use in mass. However it is not yet on sale in all the potential markets of the brand. The main countries in which it is to the sale are Japan, California, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom, Germany, Denmark, and Employment. If we look closely, Spain is not, and the reason is simple: we do not have adequate infrastructure to supply hydrogen to these cars.
To solve this problem, and that the Toyota Mirai hydrogen can reach Spain Spanish Hydrogen Association (AeH2) and Toyota Spain have come to an agreement. The agreement, signed by Augustine Martin (president of Toyota Spain) and Javier Brey (president of the AeH2), involves collaboration to develop the sector of the hydrogen as well as the implementation of the fuel cell in the automobile market Spanish. Through this agreement both the brand as well as the association seek that the society consider this type of propulsion with the same normalidad that treat the gasoline, diesel and now hybrid and electric.
With this partnership we look for boost, both the private sector as the public, the creation of a stable network of recharge in Spain to put this fuel in first line to the transport. As data we must remember that today in Spain there are only four seasons (all private) to refill the hydrogen tanks in a short time and at a relatively low cost.
