The Greater London Authority, Welsh Government and Transport Scotland are the latest organizations to join UK H2Mobility, a national project in which industry leaders and Government are working together to realize the benefits of hydrogen-fueled road transport. (Earlier post.)
The new partners will strengthen the project’s national reach and its ability to develop a viable, co-ordinated roadmap for maximizing the potential of hydrogen fuel as a zero-carbon transport solution.
Each of the new members plays a key role in planning, developing and administering transport infrastructures serving millions of people.
The project has already identified the opportunities and the challenges that need to be met in order for hydrogen-powered Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) to become a viable proposition for UK transport. In phase one of the project it has shown how, with the right investment and refueling infrastructure in place, by 2030 there could be 1.6 million FCEVs on the UK’s roads, delivering a significant reduction in carbon emissions and further, tangible societal and business benefits.
