Recently Laurent Wauquiez, President of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region and Xavier Dullin, President of Grand Chambéry inaugurated last week the first renewable hydrogen refueling station.
The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region launched the Zero Emission Valley project in 2017. The objective is to create 20 hydrogen charging stations and finance a fleet of 1,000 vehicles running on hydrogen. Last Friday, the first station of the project was inaugurated in Chambéry .
