Getting The Tech Bet Wrong

Nov 1, 2019

The worst thing in tech is investing in a technology just as it gets overtaken by a better technology. Remember Mercury Communications which started setting up  phone boxes in the UK  1986 and stopped in 1995 when it realised that mobile phones were making phone boxes an anachronism? Well it’s a bit like that for the EV infrastructure guys. For years they’ve been persuading local councils and latterly supermarkets to set up charging posts. Now an alternative is rearing its competitive head – hydrogen fuel cell refuelling stations. There are not many of them but there are a few at: Beaconsfield, Teddington, Rainham, Rotherham, Cobham, Gatwick, Orkney and Swindon. Not much, but enough to make an EV guy wonder: Is there anything in this FCV thing? Hydrogen fuel cell refuelling stations cost £1.5 million a shot so there must be something which makes companies invest. What about elsewhere?
