The British company AFC Energy has demonstrated a network-independent charging solution for electric vehicles under the name CH2ARGE. A hydrogen fuel cell system provides energy to charge a connected battery that lastly delivers the charge for the electric car.

The idea is not bad at all – to charge battery-electric vehicles with a system based on hydrogen thus becoming independent from the grid. Naturally, it enables a mobile charging solution that AFC Energy said could also be easily packaged in a shipping container and used temporarily, for example at remote locations or events.

Technically, CH2ARGE contains AFC’s small hydrogen fuel cell solution along with an inverter that transfers the energy generated by the fuel cell to the EV charger. So hydrogen stored in tanks on site is used by the fuel cell to charge the 40 kW battery which then delivers its energy to the electric vehicle.
