Based in France and aimed at European markets, HYVIA is a joint venture between Renault Group and Plug Power. It offers a vertically-integrated hydrogen ecosystem from platinum-based green hydrogen production and distribution through to the build-out of hydrogen refuelling stations, alongside a range of FCEV light commercial vehicles based on the Renault Master platform.
Meanwhile in China, Great Wall Motors’ (GWM) hydrogen energy strategy is built on a similarly integrated approach that connects upstream hydrogen storage and production activities with downstream transport solutions. GWM is attaching equal importance to commercial vehicles and passenger cars with plans to launch both a fuel-cell SUV model and a 49-ton hydrogen fuel cell truck.
