Hydrogen-based electric bicycles show up in Chinese cities


The latest mode of transportation in China are electrically power assisted bicycle that runs on hydrogen. Yong’an Gong Technology, the developer of the hydrogen electric bicycles, has launched a large number of hydrogen electric bicycles in Changzhou, the Lingang Ne Area in Shanghai, and the Old City in Lijiang. In the future, they plan to expand to Beijing, Shenzhen, Wuhan, and other cities. The bicycles have passed multiple tests, including impact and combustion tests,

They can be used by scanning a 2-D barcode with a smartphone.Th e fee is 0.5 yuan for 30 minutes (approx. 60 €its), and the range is 70 km.

Hydrogen energy is part of China’s future national energy system. The “Medium- and Long-Term Plan for the Development of Hydrogen Energy Industry (2021-35),” jointly launched in 2022 by China’s National Development and Reform Commission and the National Energy Administration, calls for “fully utilizing the clean, low-carbon advantages of hydrogen energy to promote the Promote green low-carbon transformation”.

Several Chinese provinces have launched policies related to the hydrogen energy industry, and in the primary market, investment in hydrogen energy is gaining momentum and also promoting the rapid development of the hydrogen electric bicycles industry. For example, Jiangsu Province has launched a regional standard called “Hydrogen Electric Bicycle General Purpose Technology Requirements,” which went into effect on October 22. Eleven hydrogen energy research and production companies and inspection and certification organizations participated in establishing this standard.
