Pragma Industries has introduced the Alpha bike with an electric motor with a source of energy in the form of hydrogen. Based power plant is a fuel cell Pedelec own design. The project was created as a universal response to modern demands in the field of “ecomobility” and the rational use of energy.
Version Alpha 2.0 without false modesty, is positioned as a “killer elektronikov”. Simply put, superior in performance characteristics similar to cars with lithium-ion batteries. Despite the fact that this unit itself is equipped with the same battery of 150 WH – the difference is that the amount of energy it is replenished from the hydrogen fuel cell, not from the wall outlet.
On one filling (2 liters of compressed hydrogen), he rides 100 km vs 50 km from electric bike with battery, 360 WH. And the process of the replenishment of energy lasts for 2 minutes instead of 3-4 hours for purely electrical systems. The ceiling rate, however, only 25 km/h, but there is no problem of rapid discharge of the battery in the cold energy is stored as compressed gas.
But where to get the hydrogen? High-school physics says that it is enough clean water and electricity to begin the hydrolysis process. Therefore, Pragma Industries together with Atawey designed a simple gas station – it can fill the Alpha stories, as long as there is connection to water and power. And no emissions. There is little, to find investors and to establish production of new products in industrial scale.
