New UK H2Mobility website sets out benefits of hydrogen vehicles
The project brings together the utility, gas, infrastructure, fuel retail and car manufacturing sectors with three government departments and has a remit to identify a roadmap for rolling out hydrogen as a low carbon fuel in the UK. This covers everything from fuel production, supply and distribution, to the development of a practical national fuel infrastructure and the introduction of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) to the market.
The new website has been launched to promote the project’s work, setting out its aims and the key learnings from its initial phase of work. It gives explanations of hydrogen fuel and hydrogen refuelling stations, together with the principles of FCEVs and the contribution they can make to future low carbon transport. Profiles of the individual businesses and Government departments working together as part of UK H2Mobility are provided along with an FAQ section that answers the most commonly asked questions about hydrogen fuel and the consortium’s work.
Chris O’Keefe, chair of UK H2Mobility Communications Committee, said: ‘We believe it’s important that the work UK H2Mobility is doing is kept in the public eye. The more we can do to explain the advantages and possibilities that hydrogen fuel can deliver, the more we can build public interest and confidence in the technology.
‘As manufacturers prepare to bring the first FCEVs to market in the next few years, we are keen to help the UK take a leadership role in securing the environmental, societal and business rewards which hydrogen fuel can deliver.’
