Australian-Israeli company Electriq Global has partnered with Dutch firm Eleqtec to bring its water-based fuel to the Netherlands to power electric mobility solutions.
Electriq Fuel is expected to be suitable for mobility applications for trucks, barges and mobile generators.
Electriq says it is is comprised of 60% water and achieves a greater range and lower cost than green energy solutions like lithium-ion batteries or compressed hydrogen.
The energy density potential of the technology is up to 15 times that of electric batteries currently in use in electric vehicles, the company adds.
Electriq is holding ‘commercialisation negotiations’ with Dutch companies and plans to launch demonstrations and prototyping projects in 2020.
