Cenex lands second hydrogen fuel project role

Published:  11 July, 2016

A key role in the development of hydrogen fuel for European transport has been given to Cenex, the UK’s first Centre of Excellence for Low Carbon and Fuel Cell technologies.

The six-year H2ME 2 project will deploy 1,230 fuel cell vehicles and 20 additional hydrogen-refueling stations (HRS) to the European network. It build on the work of H2ME 1 project which will deploy 300 vehicles and 29 HRS as part of a pan-European network.

Cenex will analyse vehicle and HRS performance to establish how ready the system is for wider deployment. And it will also help pass on critical information and recommendations to key stakeholders.

Robert Evans, CEO of Cenex, said: ‘H2ME 2 complements the great work started in H2ME 1. It brings together multiple businesses and public bodies to work jointly on the common goal of making hydrogen-fueled transport in Europe a reality.

‘Together with our work on E-mobility and gas as a transport fuel, the H2ME projects address the present and future viability of alternative fuels as sustainable solutions for European road transport.’
