HYGEN's Home Refueling Appliance is a refueling infrastructure solution for Natural Gas Vehicles. It solves the chicken and egg problem of lack of refueling infrastructure by utilizing already existing Natural Gas distribution grid. The uniqueness of our patented technology is that it enables a disruptive decrease of refueling infrastructure costs by matching the price point of less than 0,20 EUR/g.l.eq. HYGEN delivers to end users a unique value proposition allowing convenient at home refueling in 3 minutes compared to any other existing solutions which require 8 hours for filling a car fuel tank. HYGEN is the last missing key element for existing natural gas pipeline infrastructure to become the largest alternative vehicle refueling infrastructure on Earth. Natural Gas is one of the best alternatives available today, with more than 20M vehicles on the road today, with over 60 OEM NGV models available, with ease of gasoline car retrofit to NGV and with a proved demand as 45% of all drivers are switching to NG when it is available. The only barrier for a rapid NGV adoption is the lack of refueling infrastructure and it slows deployment currently making only 3,6% of all gasoline stations around the World. The answer comes in form of one of the largest infrastructure projects ever built by mankind – Gas Distribution Grid (GDG). It connects more than 200 M detached private houses all around the world with cheap, clean and sustainable energy source – Natural Gas. At least 20% of these households are spending 3000 EUR/y on fuel aggregating 150B EUR/y. With cheap, convenient and reliable Home Refueling Station existing GDG can be used to transform the balance of energy sources in transportation market by shifting at least 150 B EUR market value from Conventional Fuel Service Providers to Gas Utilities, Gas Retailers & End Users. HYGEN HRA is a game changer of Home Refueling business for Gas Utilities and End Users as it provides 8x economic change compared to the next best solution available today (2x cheaper and 4x longer lifetime) and has the superior convenience of 3 min. refueling. By combining NGVs with HYGEN HRA solution we are changing completely the economics and convenience of using NGVs, outmatching EVs in the most of parameters and making it superior alternative solution for the driver.
