Tierr@_de_N@die: Tesla keeps pushing hard to became the first enterprise to offer a mobility choice based on hydrogen. They believe that hydrogen is the best choice when dealing with long range and heavy transportation. The alkaline electrolyzers will provide to Tesla stations green hydrogen as far as they used energy comes from renewable sources.
One of the main criticisms toward fuel cells is that most of the hydrogen comes from natural gas. That is probably why the Nikola Corporation decided to have alkaline electrolyzers in its hydrogen stations. We know that because the company announced it bought these electrolyzers from Nel ASA in a $30 million deal. These pieces of equipment will help Nikola generate a total of 40 metric tons of hydrogen per day.
