The UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (UK HFCA) was delighted to see the recent Govenrment’s announcement of 7 new hydrogen refuelling projects part-funded by the Hydrogen Refuelling Stations (HRS) Infrastructure Grants Scheme, run by the Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV).

The £6.6 million investment will help establish an initial network of 12 hydrogen refuelling stations across the UK, including new stations built in Brentford and Croydon and a new mobile station that will be used across the south of England, as well as upgrades to existing hydrogen demonstrator stations.
