The revolution of electric vehicles has arrived in Italy, but it still has trouble taking off. At the moment, hybrid technology, particularly due to range anxiety, would appear to be the most quoted. The aim of this work is to understand if the fuel cell technology can find place in Italy. The possibility to use fuel cell to storage electric energy is quite interesting: the charging times will be reduced, and heavy passenger transportation should be easily faced. Based on the existing history and analysis of the accessible information, this paper discusses the existing e-mobility scenario in Italy and foresees cities where hydrogen refuelling infrastructure should be more remunerative in order to provide a measured outlook on the possible advancement of the niche market.
