Through its partnership with Dutch company Eleqtec, Australian-Israeli company Electriq~Global’s water-based fuel is expanding to the Netherlands to power eMobility solutions in 2020.

Electriq~Global and Dutch company Eleqtec have entered into an agreement to launch Electriq~Global’s water-based fuel technology in the Netherlands. Together they plan to launch Electriq~Fuel’s recycling plants, and introduce eMobility applications for trucks, barges and mobile generators.

The progressive Dutch market is moving to adopt zero-emission mobility solutions and is looking for commercial and economical clean energy applications.

Comprised of 60 per cent water, Electriq~Fuel is a game-changer in zero-emissions energy. The innovative fuel is a cost-efficient alternative to batteries and compressed hydrogen. When compared to green energy storage solutions like lithium-ion batteries or compressed hydrogen, Electriq~Global achieves a greater range at a lower cost. The energy density potential of the technology is up to 15 times that of electric batteries currently in use in electric vehicles.
