Green drivers to be offered easier hydrogen fill-ups

View original Hydrogen Fuel Pump

Graeme Paton has reported that the number of hydrogen fuel stations is expected to rise significantly under a government initiative to offer motorists green alternatives to diesel and petrol. The DfT has invested £23m into a fund to encourage the use of hydrogen vehicles. Firms will be able to bid for a share of the cash, in partnership with vehicle manufacturers, to build more filling stations. Transport minister John Hayes said: “The transition to zero-emission road transport is both inevitable and desirable, as it will improve air quality in many towns and cities. Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles can play a vital role alongside battery electric vehicles to help us cut harmful emissions.”

With LEPs now responsible for significant amounts of local transport funding decisions, the Transport Knowledge Hub is a timely new tool for local decision makers. At the LEP Network, we know the huge value of giving LEPs a forum to share best practice and engage with other stakeholders, so we are delighted to be involved with a transport-specific project which supports spending decisions that make a genuine difference.
