EXECUTIVE VIEWPOINTS
Paving the way for the hydrogen
highway
Experts at SAE WCX 2022 look beyond EVs to other systems that can garner
net-zero capabilities.
by Paul Seredynski
Toyota is operating 10
Kenworth Class-8 trucks
in and around the ports
of Los Angeles and Long
Beach, each powered by
two Mirai fuel-cell stacks.
W
ith the majority of public debate centering around the
internal combustion engine (ICE)-to-EV transition, the
engineering community continues to explore alternative
forms of E-propulsion. The 2022 SAE WCX
Leadership Summit panel " The Hydrogen Highway " gathered multiple
H2
experts to assess hydrogen's
potential role across
all vehicle segments.
Moderated remotely by
Peter Devlin, the technology
development and intergovernmental
coordination manager
for the U.S. Dept. of Energy's
(DOE) fuel cell technologies
office (FCTO), the session also
was joined virtually by Joanna
Richart, head of hydrogen
business at Ricardo. On site for
the panel was: Jacquelyn
Birdsall, senior engineering
manager of the Fuel Cell
Integration Group at Toyota
Motor North America
Research and Development;
Wayne Eckerle, VP of solid
oxide and advanced exploratory
technologies for the
16 June 2022
New Power Business at Cummins Inc.; and Ryan Harty,
senior manager of Honda's CASE & Energy Business
Development division.
Each panelist presented their companies' efforts in
expanding hydrogen's role in the transportation sector,
with a common aspect of bringing
hydrogen's role as either a
combustion fuel or fuel-cell resource
out of the industrial/
commercial space and into the
light-duty vehicle market.
Edited highlights of each speaker's
presentation follow.
The hydrogen panel at SAE WCX 2022 consisted of (left to right):
SAE program developer Marc LeDuc, Wayne Eckerle of Cummins,
Ryan Harty of Honda, and Jacquelyn Birdsall of Toyota Motor North
America R&D. The moderator, Peter Devlin of the U.S. DOE, and
Ricardo's Joanna Richart joined the session remotely.
" We're not going to just snap our fingers
and have the infrastructure totally transition
and ready to accommodate 100% batteryelectric
and fuel-cell electric. "
- Jacquelyn Birdsall, Toyota Motor North America R&D
Expanding hydrogen
infrastructure
The DOE's Devlin provided a
keen snapshot of current hydrogen
use in the U.S., noting the
majority of applications center
around backup fuel-cell power
setups for systems such as cellular
towers (quoting 550
megawatts of capacity for more
than 8,600 such units), with
