Multimillion pound Government support for hydrogen vehicles and infrastructureApril 25, 2018
A consortium managed by Element Energy and including ITM Power, Shell, Toyota, Honda and Hyundai has won £8.8 million in funding from the Department for Transport (DfT) to expand and improve the UK network of hydrogen refuelling stations.
The project will deliver four new hydrogen refuelling stations and upgrade five existing hydrogen refuelling stations to increase capacity. The increase in available hydrogen will support the deployment of nearly 200 new hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) across high mileage sectors such as taxis, emergency services and car hire. This project is the largest expansion of hydrogen refuelling infrastructure undertaken in the UK to date. Further funding support for the project has also been secured from the European Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU).
