Hyundai’s advancement in hydrogen energy has been fueled by a dedication to becoming carbon neutral by 2045. It was noted that HTWO’s evolution from a fuel cell system brand to a full hydrogen value chain enterprise was evidence of the company’s commitment to sustainable energy. This innovative endeavor offers a comprehensive method of utilizing hydrogen energy by integrating the production, storage, transportation, and use phases of the hydrogen value chain.

A key component of this project is the HTWO Grid solution, which aims to hasten the shift to a hydrogen society. Hyundai uses its broad network across many industries, such as robotics, construction, and automobiles, to provide customized hydrogen solutions. Hyundai is emphasizing hydrogen in order to position it as a major participant in the sustainable energy landscape. This goes beyond simply lowering carbon emissions. It also involves optimizing the use of renewable energy sources.

Waste-to-Hydrogen (W2H) and Plastic-to-Hydrogen (P2H) are two innovative methods of producing hydrogen. Whereas W2H turns biogas from biological waste into hydrogen, P2H focuses on turning non-recyclable plastics into hydrogen. Hyundai demonstrates its dedication to environmental sustainability and resource circulation through these approaches.

Hyundai unveiled its “Software-defined Everything” (SDx) approach, which uses AI and software to reinvent automobiles, fleets, and transportation networks. This approach includes the creation of Software-Defined Vehicles (SDVs) by incorporating software development techniques into the process of creating new vehicles. Hyundai is focusing on SDVs in order to build a user-centric mobility environment that goes beyond traditional transportation paradigms, not merely to improve vehicle performance.
