Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME), the project which aims to demonstrate that hydrogen (H2) can support Europe’s future transport demands, has announced that the first 100 fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV’s) deployed by H2ME are now on the road in Germany, France and the UK.
The new vehicles are exciting the market with the potential of a new generation of fuel-efficient, zero-emission vehicles.
In the coming years, the H2ME project will deploy partners’ next-generation FCEVs with the aim to increase the number of FCEVs operating on Europe’s roads to build on the strong networks of H2 refuelling stations created by H2ME and other initiatives across the EU.
Ben Madden, Element Energy, Overall Coordinator of the H2ME projects, said, “H2ME is delighted to see its first 100 fuel cell vehicles now on the road in three critical European markets. To start the transition to a zero-emission transportation system it is essential to put the latest technology in drivers’ hands and use the hydrogen demand created to develop and test the refueling networks, which are required to support these vehicles. We are proud of the rapid progress our partners have made in deploying this technology, which can accelerate Europe’s move to clean transportation.”
