The Everfuel Hydrogen Promise

Vision of a decarbonised world
Everfuel is looking into a visionary world of fossil free mobility by 2050.

 

Our mission
Air pollution and global warming are two of the greatest challenges of today. Contributing to solving these issues, Everfuel’s mission is to enable European-wide production, distribution and refuelling of 100% green hydrogen fuel at prices competitive to traditional gasoline and diesel.

 

A fuel for generations
Green hydrogen is produced from renewable electricity and water. When hydrogen is consumed in fuel cell vehicles the only tail pipe emission is water. The process merely borrows water and enables a full utilisation of flexibly produced renewable energy (wind/solar). Hydrogen is not just a cleanup from fossil fuels. Hydrogen is a fuel for generations.

 

Ambition
Our ambition is to develop a European-wide offering of hydrogen supply and fuelling solutions for heavy duty vehicles and industrial stakeholders by 2030. Supporting this ambition, hydrogen production and distribution facilities and key partnerships are being established across Europe, starting in the North-West (NO, SE, DK, DE, NL, BE) and expanding from there.

Complete value chain
Everfuel will facilitate the complete hydrogen value chain from hydrogen production to point of delivery. This enables Everfuel’s objectives and activities to expand rapidly and provide competitive hydrogen prices to end-users. Everfuel is establishing partnerships throughout Europe.

 

Clean and green – true zero emission
Both fuel cell and battery electric technologies support zero emission transport. However, the charging of electric vehicles needs to be synchronized with renewable energy production, or it merely uses the grid mix which in most areas has a significant carbon footprint.

Hydrogen is produced when renewable electricity is physically available, before the stored energy (hydrogen) is distributed and dispensed to end-users. This makes hydrogen a true zero emission fuel – and contributor to a more balanced electricity grid and energy system.

 

Everfuellers
We call ourselves Everfuellers. We are ambitious and solutions-oriented. We have extensive hydrogen experience and are dedicated to commercializing hydrogen production, -distribution and -fuelling. Creating a sustainable zero emission fuel for Everfuel’s customers, partners and for generations to come.
