Honda, Toyota shock the Montreal auto show with investments in hydrogen refueling



Driving.ca | David Booth | 25 JAN 2019

Honda and Toyota shocked the Montreal auto show last week by announcing a partnership in developing a hydrogen-refueling infrastructure in Quebec. La Belle Province makes a perfect venue for this unexpected cooperation because of its abundance of hydro-powered electricity (of which much is required to electrolyze hydrogen from water) and its California-inspired push to zero-emissions vehicles.

Nonetheless, the two are normally the archest of rivals so the joint announcement — by Martin Gilbert, Toyota Canada’s director of corporate strategy and innovation and Jean-Marc Leclerc, VP of sales and marketing for Honda Canada — in this multi-fuel initiative was surprise to the assembled media.


To us, what’s most exciting is that the station will use an on-site electrolyzer to turn Quebec’s abundant hydroelectricity into clean, sustainable hydrogen for fuel cell electric vehicles,” said Gilbert


with Leclerc adding that “this investment will create an environment where we can continue to test our products and educate Canadians on the vast potential of hydrogen-powered vehicles today knowing that mass adoption could take some time.”...more: https://driving.ca/toyota/auto-news/news/honda-toyota-shock-the-montreal-auto-show-with-investments-in-hydrogen-refueling

Hydrogen vehicles outperform battery only EV's in cold weather. So Canadians won't have to worry about turning up the heat when it's -20C

Seven-Eleven Japan and Toyota to Launch Joint Next-generation Convenience Store Project in Autumn 2019 toward Greater CO2 Emissions Reduction

Tokyo, Japan, June 6, 2018―Seven-Eleven Japan Co., Ltd. (Seven-Eleven) and Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) announce today details of a joint project to reduce CO2 emissions. Seven-Eleven and Toyota entered into a basic agreement in August 2017 regarding considerations toward energy conservation and carbon dioxide emission reduction in store distribution and operation. Toyota has been investigating the use of newly developed fuel cell trucks and fuel cell generators, and the project will be implemented in stages starting in 2019.

The project aims to introduce technologies and systems developed by Toyota in Seven-Eleven store operation and distribution, reducing CO2 emissions. Stationary fuel cell generators (FC generators) and rechargeable batteries will be introduced at stores, managed centrally by building energy management systems (BEMS), raising the proportion of renewable energy and electric power derived from hydrogen used. A newly developed small fuel cell truck (small FC truck) will be introduced in the distribution process, aiming to achieve zero emissions of substances of concern including CO2.

The Seven & i Group is currently addressing five key issues*. Regarding non wasteful usage of products, ingredients and energy, Seven & i is seeking to expand renewable energy use in line with the objectives of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015. Specifically, the Group plans to increase renewable energy use in stores to 20 percent and reduce CO2 emissions by 27 percent compared to FY 2013 by 2030. Seven-Eleven is taking measures to reduce CO2 emissions throughout its entire supply chain to meet its goals, focusing on renewable energy.

On December 7, 2017, Seven-Eleven opened the environmentally, user friendly Seven-Eleven Chiyoda Nibancho Store as a flagship of these initiatives. The second such store, the Seven-Eleven Sagamihara Hashimotodai Itchome Store, opened on May 22, 2018, with renewable energy accounting for 46 percent of the store's electric power usage. Toyota technologies and systems that use hydrogen will be introduced in stores and distribution sites, with next generation stores further using renewable energy. Two small FC trucks are intended to be introduced within the Tokyo metropolitan region in approximately spring 2019, and operations next generation stores are expected to commence in approximately autumn 2019...more: https://newsroom.toyota.co.jp/en/corporate/22833613.html

"La Belle Province makes a perfect venue for this unexpected cooperation because of its abundance of hydro-powered electricity (of which much is required to electrolyze hydrogen from water) and its California-inspired push to zero-emissions vehicles."

...and all the other areas of the world who don't have a nearby "abundance of hydro-powered electricity" are suppose to get all the much needed electricity from where???

2. ive been reading about all this magic fairy fuel in your posts for over a year.

yet for some mysterious reason, I still havent seen any of my neighbors driving one.
hmm.. I wonder why?
