Russia is preparing for serial production of hydrogen trains

Russia intends to start mass production of trains on hydrogen fuel cells. Transmashholding, with the support of Rosatom Corporation, is planning to start producing environmentally friendly trains. This was announced on the eve of the agency "Russian Railways-Partner."

Russia is preparing for serial production of hydrogen trains

It is worth noting that the demand for alternative energy sources is increasing every year. This interest, to a large extent, is associated with modern climate and energy policies.

To date, the largest distribution of hydrogen fuel cells has received in European countries.

In addition, the introduction of alternative energy sources is positively influenced by the availability of incentive measures and benefits from the state. In particular, stricter regulation regarding carbon dioxide emissions.

At the moment, Canada is the largest producer of hydrogen fuel cells. However, given the fact that the "progenitor" of such of technologies is the space and rocket sector, Russia has every chance of becoming a leader in this industry. And, apparently, it is TMX that seeks to occupy this, as yet, promising niche.

    Some kind of idiocy:
    hydrogen must be somehow reproduced, it takes energy, which must be taken from somewhere ...
    - in general, in terms of energy costs, no ecology was lying about a mile away.

    Yes, you can switch to hydrogen energy, but first you need to figure out what will be cheaper for Russia and how much it will cost to switch to hydrogen if it works well with oil and gas. You can develop all the technologies for obtaining new energy, but with the benefit for us, and not with some jerks or rummages by ill-considered desire.

    Another blah blah noodle breakthrough.
    No business plan, no estimates, no calculations, but "intends to start" and

    Considering that the “progenitor” of such technologies is the rocket and space sector, Russia has every chance to become a leader in this industry.

    Now railway will rise again in price ...

    "hydrogen trains" God forbid they decide to test it. Has the engine been tested in Severodvinsk and how did it end? Correctly say "there is no need to fight with Russia, they will wear themselves out"
