UK H2Mobility is building on the work it achieved in its first phase, developing a detailed business case for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) and establishing a framework within which its members can commit to specific actions.
It will identify how obstacles to implementing its roadmap can be overcome, using different tools and mechanisms.
Phase one produced a series of key issues concerning infrastructure, market appeal and fuel production that need to be addressed and these are central to the next stage of the project.
In phase two, the members of the project are now developing a commercial model for building the initial network of hydrogen refuelling stations. Options are being explored for making FCEVs an attractive consumer proposition at an early stage, and the means of establishing a clear pathway, with controls, to the production of low-carbon hydrogen fuel with the right purity for use in FCEVs are being assessed.
