EU flagship project Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME) said it had reached a key milestone, with hydrogen-powered vehicles travelling over eight million km to date. Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME) said this demonstrates vital importance of hydrogen to achieving zero-emission mobility.
Reporting to the The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME) reported its milestones when it comes to hydrogen and zero-emissions mobility.
The H2ME project has now deployed nearly 500 hydrogen-powered fuel cell, electric vehicles and 30 hydrogen refuelling stations across Germany, France, Scandinavia, the United Kingdom and other European countries.
Ben Madden, director at Element Energy and project lead and co-ordinator 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.’
