The Hydrogen Purpose of Extreme E
In 2022, Extreme E unveiled its intentions to start a hydrogen-powered off-road championship, dubbed Extreme H. Earlier this year and in collaboration with the FIA, the global motorsport governing body, it presented a pathway for Extreme H to stand as the first world off-road racing championship powered by this fuel.
Thus, the establishment of a hydrogen racing series represents a logical progression of the championship’s mission, which seeks to showcase the capabilities of the latest innovations and technologies in the fight against climate challenges.
Extreme H will serve as a comprehensive proving ground for research and development of emerging technologies and sustainable solutions. At the same time, it will leverage the impact of renewable hydrogen-powered mobility.
“As the energy transition continues apace towards a low-carbon future, it is crucial to collaborate with industry leaders and pioneers to deliver sustainable solutions that can have a huge impact, especially as we move towards Extreme H and the world’s first global hydrogen race,” Russell concluded.
