H2Share, the project submitted by WaterstofNet, developer of sustainable hydrogen (H2) projects, has received grant approval from the Interreg North West Europe (NWE) programme.
The objective of ‘H2Share’ is to facilitate the development of a market for low-carbon heavy duty vehicles for logistic applications, and gain practical experience in different regions in NWE.
Evidence from the logistics sector shows a strong growing interest in zero-emission vehicles to reduce environmental impact and emissions which have a negative impact on air quality. This particularly is the case for the EU where the logistics sector contributes 25% of total transport sector CO2 emissions and traffic causes a significant part of the total pollution.
A 27 tonne rigid H2-powered truck will be built by VDL, and a flexible Low energy mobile H2 refueler will be built by Wystrach GmbH. The goal is to demonstrate the truck at six locations in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and France.
The project will run until March 2020 and will be coordinated and disseminated by WaterstofNet.

Hydrogen (H2) energy expert Arcola Energy has helped to establish the largest H2 vehicle fleet in the UK, having now sold or leased 32 of Renault’s Kangoo ZE-H2 electric vans.
Hydrogenics, developer and manufacturer of hydrogen (H2) generation and H2-based power modules, has announced that it has signed a Purchase and License Agreement for technology and fuel cells with Blue-G New Energy Science and Technology Corporation (Blue-G).
