E-Mobility / Mobile Charging Stations


E-Mobility / Mobile Charging Stations


The intended rollout of large volumes of electric vehicles simultaneously poses a challenge to existing grid resources and a potential overload of corresponding grid sections.

In regions without existing grid infrastructure, the challenge is even more complex but crucial for a rapid and comprehensive service. The installation of grid infrastructure usually takes up to 24 months and costs on average of €100,000 per kilometer. 

With the HYREF system, whether in a stationary container or on wheels, the methanol fuel cell can be used independently of any infrastructure. The power can be scaled as required, offering the user a high degree of freedom. 

Bio-/methanol is available worldwide, the logistics and storage can be flexibly adapted to the customer's needs.


Grid-independent bio-/methanol fuel cells to power charging stations ensure existing power grids are not overloaded while the power supply of charging stations is secured. For simultaneous charging of several e-vehicles with high storage capacity, the fuel cell systems are equipped with buffer batteries that can supply charging currents in ranges up to several 100 Amp.

In connection with expected bottlenecks in the distribution networks, fuel cell systems can be the solution to the supply problem. The existing infrastructure does not have to be impacted by the laying of pipes and cables. There is no need for time consuming and expensive reconstruction work on roads, sidewalks or parking lots. The fuel cell system can be used anywhere, without special modification measures.

Combining existing charging stations that are supplied with wind or solar energy with a Bio-/methanol fuel cell will increase the operational reliability of the charging stations.


Fuel cell charging station

With an average energy consumption of 15-20 kWh/100 km, our off-grid fuel cell* provides sufficient and continuous charging capacity for at least 2 vehicles/h (max. 14 vehicles/h). Assumption: Average charging capacity: CAR = 50 kW/h, e-bike = 500 W/h.

*Example shows a 20 kW fuel cell combined with a 250 kW battery.
