Ampol's view on the commercial realities of hydrogen

Watch this video presentation from our previous hydrogen conference in March. Patrick Luxton, General Manager Hydrogen, Ampol discuss the commercial realities of hydrogen, including:

  • Key elements in the successful adoption of hydrogen, including the most challenging aspects of moving from traditional fuels to hydrogen (hint - it costs eight times as much)
  • Why 'back to base' fleets will be the first users of hydrogen fuel cells
  • Time scales for significant penetration and why detailing long-term costs may be a vital element in convincing consumers to move to hydrogen
  • How leveraging off other projects in hydrogen hubs may be the only way to overcome the capital-intensive nature of establishing hydrogen assets
  • Why we need to be mindful of safety and reliability (including learning from the sub-par US experience with re-fuelling stations)
