A catalyst for change: How Parisian taxi firm Hype is creating supply and demand to build the hydrogen economy

Hydrogen mobility pioneer Hype is building what it says will be the world’s biggest hydrogen station in Paris that will refuel passenger cars, buses, trucks and even boats – and CEO and founder Mathieu Gardies told H2 View there are plans afoot to expand Hype outside of Paris into other European cities.

Currently under construction in Porte de Saint-Cloud, the station will have an electrolyser on site and will be able to distribute one tonne of hydrogen per day.

This is a 400% increase on volume when compared with Hype’s earlier stations in Orly Roissy which are 200kg, and Parisian taxi firm’s very first station at Place de L’Alma which was only 40kg.
