28 November 2023

The Biden administration advocates increasing hydrogen production as a clean energy resource, which is in turn inspiring some tech entrepreneurs to develop hydrogen-powered drones that may be able to fly longer, farther, and carry heavier payloads than models driven by batteries.

"We are at a pivotal moment in the drone industry," says Heven Drones CEO Bentzion Levinson, whose company has released two hydrogen-powered drones. "With these hydrogen-powered drones, we are redefining the possibilities of what drones can achieve, while leveraging a clean and readily available fuel source."

The Heven H2D200 can reportedly carry twice the payload of a typical electric-powered drone (10 lbs.) and has a range of approximately 317 miles. It also claims four hours of flight time. The Heven H2D250 bests even those numbers, with a payload limit of 22 pounds, a potential range of 466 miles, and up to eight hours of flight time.

While hydrogen infrastructure is not yet ready for prime time, the possibilities of clean-energy and increased performance could favorably impact the droning industry's future. What are your thoughts? Send your comments to mmolenda@thedroningcompany.com.
