Germany rolls out the first hydrogen powered trains. Bright blue Coradia iLint trains, built by French TGV-maker Alstom, will be running a 62 mile (100 km) route between the towns and cities of Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven, Bremervoerde and Buxtehude in northern Germany – a stretch normally plied by diesel trains.
Hydrogen trains are equipped with fuel cells that produce electricity through a combination of hydrogen and oxygen, a process that leaves steam and water as the only emissions. Excess energy is stored in ion lithium batteries on board the train. The Coradia iLint trains can run for about 600 miles (1,000 km) on a single tank of hydrogen, similar to the range of diesel trains.
