A private taxi firm in London now boasts Europe’s largest zero emission corporate fleet with more hydrogen powered vehicles added this month. The 25 new Toyota Mirais (which means ‘Future’ in Japanese) deployed to Green Tomato Cars will double the size of their hydrogen fleet, taking the total number of hydrogen vehicles to 50, and contribute to cleaner air and sustainable travel across the city. The vehicles use hydrogen fuel cell technology to deliver a range of 300 miles from a three-... Read more
PRESS RELEASE Brussels, 17 May 2019 A new study commissioned by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) and Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking (S2R JU) analyses the opportunities to enable a larger introduction of fuel cells and hydrogen (FCH) technologies within the European railway market. The study shows significant market potential for FCH technologies in the rail environment. The technology provides a flexible, zero-emission and potentially cost-competitive solution... Read more
Hydrogen Denmark has just finalized a report in Danish on user experiences from driving on hydrogen in Denmark. Denmark is on the forefront of FCEV opportunities with cars from Hyundai, Toyota and Honda on the market and with 10 refueling stations in operation. The report is the first of its kind focusing on the user experiences from driving and refueling in Denmark. View the full press release here.
On Tuesday May 22nd Hyundai Denmark handed over two fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) to two Copenhagen Mayors: the Mayor of Social Services, Mia Nyegaard and the Mayor of Employment and Integration, Cecilia Lonning-Skovgaard. The FCEVs will serve as the primary means of transport for the mayors in their official capacities. The cars are funded under the FCH JU project H2ME2. View the full press release here.
FCH JU- funded project ZEFER (Zero Emission Fleet vehicles for European Roll-out) will deploy large fleets of 60 hydrogen fuelled vehicles in each of three European capitals (Paris, London and Brussels). These vehicles will be used in the applications where hydrogen fuelled vehicles are the most valuable – fleets which drive long distances every day, which need rapid refuelling, and which operate in polluted city centres where zero-emission hydrogen vehicles can have the greatest impact on...

Wednesday 25/01/2018 -The fuel cell bus sector in Europe has this week received a tremendous boost with the launch of the FCH JU JIVE 2 project (Second Joint Initiative for hydrogen Vehicles across Europe). With a support budget of  €25m  from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), the JIVE 2 project will deploy 152 fuel cell electric buses across 14 European cities throughout France, Germany, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands and the UK. This will expand the... Read more
Shell and ITM Power will build the world’s largest hydrogen electrolysis plant at Rhineland refinery, Germany. With a peak capacity of 10 megawatts the hydrogen will be used for the processing and upgrading of products at the refinery’s Wesseling site as well as testing the technology and exploring application in other sectors. The European partner consortium of Shell, ITM Power, SINTEF, thinkstep and Element Energy has now secured 10 million euros in funding from the European “Fuel Cell... Read more
The launch of a groundbreaking project targeting sustainable and clean urban waste transportation in Europe took place on the 17th of January 2018 in Brussels (Belgium): REVIVE, which stands for Refuse Vehicle Innovation and Validation in Europe. REVIVE’s overall objective is to be the largest demonstration of fuel cell-range extender trucks to date, one of very few options for the decarbonization of heavy duty vehicles. For urban trucks, there is an increasing need for... Read more
