Powerfuel: Discovering the fuels of the future
Together with its partners Avenergy Suisse and Hyundai, Empa is presenting a new permanent exhibition on sustainable fuels of the future at the Swiss Museum of Transport starting in March 2021. Among other things, the focus is on the question: How does green electricity get into the tank? And: Which fuel makes sense for which purpose? In an interactive game, visitors can even virtually produce hydrogen themselves.
Individual mobility is in a constant state of flux, moving toward ever more energy-efficient solutions. And with it, the associated infrastructure, including filling stations, is also changing. Because with the goal of reducing CO2 emissions based on technical developments, a diversification of fuels is required. What about hydrogen mobility? How does a fuel cell vehicle work? How are liquid synthetic fuels produced? Where does Switzerland get its fuel from? The new "Powerfuel" theme island in the Road Transport Hall of the Swiss Museum of Transport provides answers to all these questions. The first hydrogen rail vehicles and aircraft can be admired on an XXL screen.
