EU flagship project Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME) reaches key milestone and announce Conference on 25 October 2019

Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME) today announced its latest results and progress in its drive to increase the usage of hydrogen within mobility. The pan-European project has now deployed close to 500 hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) and 30 hydrogen refuelling stations (HRS) across Germany, France, Scandinavia, the United Kingdom and other European countries. Vehicles have now travelled over 8 million kilometres since the project began in 2015, with over 5 million of these happening in 2018.

Findings and conclusions from H2ME will be shared at the Hydrogen for Clean Transport midterm conference, which will take place in Hamburg on 25th October 2019. Hamburg is the perfect location for the event as it has taken a strategic approach to adopting hydrogen, particularly in combination with renewable energies, launching a wide range of projects with ongoing local political support.

Ben Madden, Director at Element Energy – H2ME Project Lead and Overall Coordinator said, “Governments at a national and local level are putting in place concrete targets to reduce emissions and accelerate the switch to zero-emission mobility. The H2ME project demonstrates that hydrogen can play a central role in this shift, ensuring that all road users have the option to participate in the transition, thanks to its ability to provide fast refuelling and long range. Today, we can already see an acceleration of the use of hydrogen as a fuel in heavy-duty and high demand applications, such as taxis, delivery vehicles and trucks.”

The full press release is available on the H2ME website: https://h2me.eu/news/
