The municipality will collaborate with regional parties to encourage driving on hydrogen. This ‘hydrogen coalition’ wants to ensure that there are enough vehicles and a delivery point.
Less CO2 emissions help in the fight against global warming and ensure cleaner air. The municipality of Tilburg, therefore, encourages emission-free transport, such as electric driving. Tilburg also focuses on driving on hydrogen. There are currently no delivery points for hydrogen and no hydrogen vehicles. One does not come without the other. That is why the municipality of Tilburg is going to collaborate with regional parties.
These parties speak out with a declaration of intent for participation in the hydrogen Coalition of the Willing Midden-Brabant. Together they will provide sufficient vehicles so that a hydrogen filling point can be realized. In addition to the municipality of Tilburg, the hydrogen coalition consists of approximately 10-15 locally and regionally active companies.
The Brabant Waste Team wants to run on hydrogen with two collection vehicles. No battery-electric variants are available for these vehicles because the capacity of the batteries is not sufficient. That is why BAT focuses on hydrogen technology. With the help of the Coalition of the Willing, steps are being taken to introduce hydrogen vehicles.
