Electro Mobility and the Energy Vector Hydrogen

A comprehensive synergy initiative, to enable the European Mobility on Renewable Energy

Objectives and economic benefits


  1. Focus on renewable resources, for European Mobility 
    • Reduce CO2 emissions
    • Avoid Peak-Oil consequences, through reduction of fossil fuel dependency
  2. Move electrical energy to Point of Sal (PoS) NOT fuels!
    • Build VA Energy Supply Grid (ESG), connecting northern (Wind), southern (Solar) and central renewable resources with Point-of-Sale (fuelling stations)
    • Apply ‘Energy Vector Hydrogen’ for local H2 production and energy storage at PoS, enabling European grid supply/demand balancing (i.e. by IT controlled Demand Side Management)
    • Develop business model for the VA ESG, incl.:
      • Organizational model for a potential ownership through a “European VA ESG Holding”, as a public-private-partnership with 51% public (EU+national governments) and 49% privately (Utilities (RES), Oil&Gas (fuelling station networks etc.) owned shares
      • Level of coverage/support by current legal/regulatory frameworks
      • Proposal for required extension/modifications of current legal/regulatory frameworks
  3. Simultaneous setup: Infrastructure for mobile energy carriers Electricity and Hydrogen + Initial BEV, PHEV, FCEV fleets
    • Implement VA ESG on initial 10 VA highways:
      • European Wide Area Network (WAN) Smart Grid: HVDC buried highway cable, integrating energy resources (north-south)
      • Local Area Networks (LAN) Smart Grid to PoS: HVAC/GIL
      • Local Hydrogen Grids (HyG): Distribution of locally produced Hydrogen within local PoS clusters
    • Reduce risk and secure ROI on VA infrastructure and fleet developments for European Mobility on Renewable Energy
    • Establish VA ESG intersections with local crossing Mobility sub grids (train networks, stationary applications, etc.)

Economic benefits Europe - to enable:

  1. Efficient establishment of a European Mobility on Renewable Energy
  2. Implement European Smart Grid solution in the transportation sector for an efficient balancing (~100% electricity sale!) between the altering energy supply (Vector Renewable Energies) and the energy load demand, though local energy storage (Energy Vector Hydrogen)
  3. Secure reliable transportation fuelling prices, as a key parameter for sustainable economic growth
  4. Rapid establishment of European Electro Mobility nucleus/pilot regions and their efficient integration
  5. Enable global Technology leadership for European industry
  6. Enforce reductions of CO2 emissions and dependency from fossil resources
  7. Saving of fossil resources for alternative industrial applications
