Motor Corporation (Toyota) and Honda R&D Co., Ltd. (Honda) will create a
mobile power generation/output system, Moving e, that consists of a fuel cell
bus that can carry a large amount of hydrogen, portable external power output
devices and portable batteries, and will begin demonstration testing of the
system’s ability to deliver electricity anytime and anywhere.
area where the Moving e can be deployed:
a radius of approximately 100km from a hydrogen station capable of refueling
a fuel cell bus
of electricity supply:
490kWh at a maximum
(Approximately 240kWh when the bus is driven 200km both ways)
1 unit of CHARGING STATION fuel cell bus
2 units of Power Exporter 9000 external power output device
36 units of Honda Mobile Power Pack
20 units of LiB-AID E500
36 units of Honda Mobile Power Pack Charge & Supply Concept charger /
a power grid is damaged during a disaster such as typhoons and rainstorms,
people suffer from an interruption in the supply of power to their homes and evacuation
centers. To address this issue, Toyota and Honda will bring technologies
together to create a mobile power generation/output system and conduct
demonstration testing of delivering electricity to people.
Taking advantage of its mobility, the Moving e
can be utilised as a “phase-free” system which can be used in times of a
disaster to support disaster response by supplying electricity in an affected
area, as well as in normal times for routine uses such as supplying power at an
event. Through this demonstration testing, the two companies will confirm the
actual needs of people and verify usability of the system.
Moving e mobile power generation/output system will consist of:
Charging Station fuel cell bus
Power Exporter 9000 portable external power output device
types of Honda’s portable batteries: LiB-AID E500 and Honda Mobile Power Pack
Mobile Power Pack Charge & Supply Concept charger/ discharger for MPP
Charging Station loaded with all equipment will be driven to the place and the
Moving e will supply electricity in actual locations. More specifically,
portable external power output devices and portable batteries will be used to
take electricity out of the fuel cell bus, which serves as a power source, and
feed electricity to electrical appliances.
on the previous version of Toyota FC bus, the Charging Station fuel cell bus
that has been developed is equipped with twice as many high-pressure hydrogen
tanks that significantly increased the amount of hydrogen it can carry,
enabling the Charging Station to feature a high-output and large-capacity power
generation capacity (generates 454kWh with maximum output of 18kW).
case of power outage during a disaster, this large capacity enables the Moving e
to supply electricity in indoor areas such as an evacuation center, as well as
inside vehicles by storing electricity generated by the Charging Station in
large-capacity portable batteries, namely Honda Mobile Power Packs and LiB-AID
E500 via the Power Exporter 9000.
featuring a space where people can take a nap, the Charging Station can serve
not only as a means of transportation but also as a place for people to rest in
times of a disaster. The two companies will verify the effectiveness of the
Moving e mobile power generation / output system as a phase-free system through
various uses by municipalities and businesses which fulfill the necessary
conditions and are willing to cooperate with the testing.
