Hydrogen London

Graz, Austria – Alset Global, a technology and engineering company working on clean mobility solutions based on hydrogen, has joined Hydrogen London. The company’s Hybrid Hydrogen technology system works with the internal combustion engine to allow today and tomorrow’s passenger cars and commercial vehicles to run on hydrogen, gasoline/diesel or a blend of both fuels. It has been developed as a practical and affordable way to reduce CO2 emissions without comprising driving range, refuelling time or performance.

“Alset welcomes the opportunity to join industry leaders and explore the potential for new technologies and implement sustainable mobility solutions based on Hydrogen. The hydrogen economy will be driven by forward-thinking cities such as London and we have long admired the work of Hydrogen London,” says Gonzalo Auil, Regional Manager of Alset Global. “The hydrogen movement is growing and its voice is becoming louder and more credible by the day. Alset Global brings a more immediate automotive technology solution that can provide carbon-free mobility now while we wait for the hydrogen infrastructure to catch up.”

Alset Global launched its Hybrid Hydrogen technology in May at the ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of Nürburgring race, in Germany, where the system was fitted to an Aston Martin Rapide S race car. This most powerful hydrogen-powered car produced around 500 PS and reached top speeds of 160 mph / 255 kph running on pure hydrogen. It made history as the first hydrogen car to complete a lap of an internationally-sanctioned motor race.

“In May we have proved the performance, durability and reliability of Hybrid Hydrogen in one of the most challenging environments possible, the next step for Alset Global is to show what this means in real life,” adds Auil. “Joining Hydrogen London enables us to reach out for more clients who are concerned with emission targets and legislations offering solutions with a clear cost advantage.”
