The UK HFCA was pleased to contribute to the Department of Transport (DfT) “Aletrnative Fuels: Calls for Evidence”.

Key messages of the UK HFCA response highlighted that because of the many benefits offered by hydrogen and fuel cells, not least of which is the opportunity for the UK to be at the forefront of this nascent global industry, the UKHFCA would like to see a rigorous and comprehensive framework of support for hydrogen infrastructure and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) as well as stationary power and other fuel cell products. This should encompass upfront consumer grants and tax incentives for FCEVs, and other products, government capex funding (potentially with additional opex funding during early rollout periods), a green hydrogen fuel supply offset (FSO) to be paid to the H2 point of sale supplier and a communications campaign to increase consideration of these products.
