Iceland’s first station that combines biomethane and hydrogen under the same canopy opened yesterday in Reykjavík.
Built under the framework of the Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME) project, the multi-energy station is the third hydrogen station in Iceland.
President of Iceland Mr. Guðni Th Jóhannesson inaugurated the station, together with the Chairman of City of Reykjavík‘s Council of Environment and Health, Ms. Líf Magneudóttir, the FCH JU Executive Director, Bart Biebuyck, and the General Manager of Icelandic New Energy, Mr. Jón Björn Skúlason.
The EU Ambassador to Iceland, Michael Mann, attended the event as well, which marked an important milestone in Iceland’s energy history.
The FCH JU is supporting Iceland to become a model in hydrogen transport in Europe, with three hydrogen stations and 17 cars already deployed, or soon to be, through the H2ME project.
The University of Waterloo has made advancements in zero-emission fuel cells which they believe could make the technology cheap enough to replace traditional gasoline engines.
