The deployment of the HyWay Program continues with this new major step, the opening of the public station on the site of GEG (Gaz Electricité de Grenoble). The station will fuel the Kangoo ZE-H2 fleet made by Symbio FCell for the HyWay.
This station follows the existing stations already deployed in Grenoble on the site of the CEA, in Fontaines on the site of SymbioFCell, and in Sassenage at the headquarter of Air Liquide. This new station will be followed soon by the one of CNR (Compagnie Nationale du Rhône) in Lyon early February, and then by the one of Valence.
This project, supported by the national agency for Environment and Energy control, ADEME, the French Region Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, and Europe (FEDER funding) aims at deploying fleets of light utility vehicles equipped with the Fuel Cell range extender developed by Symbio FCell, which more than doubles the range of the battery-based electric vehicle.
The project gathers together 18 customers, which are real daily operating users, such as: Air liquide, Auto-Losange Renault, DHL, La Poste, Crédit Agricole Sud Rhône-Alpes, Schneider Electric, et local authorities and institutions, such as CEA, the Department Council of Isère, Dreal Rhône-Alpes (Government administration for Environment and Energy), or Intercommunal Water Syndicate of the Grenoble region (SIERG).
