The H2Accelerate collaboration has today (March 14) announced it has secured €30m ($32m) of funding for the deployment of 150 hydrogen fuel cell trucks and eight heavy-duty hydrogen refuelling stations.
Planned to allow for the testing of trucks and refuelling equipment under real-word conditions, it is hoped the two projects will comes as a key step towards the mass commercialisation of the hydrogen mobility technology.
Falling under the H2Accelerate TRUCKS project, between Daimler Truck, Volvo Group, Iveco Group, VVT, International Road Union (IRU), Romanian National Union of Road Transporters (UNTRR), Federazione Italiana Autotasportatori Professionali (FIAP), WKÖ, and Element Energy France, the deployment of the 150 vehicles will be coordinated by SINTEF, supported by Shell, TotalEnergies, and Everfuel.
Funded by the Clean Hydrogen Partnership, it plans to see 150 fuel cell trucks on European roads by the mid-to-late 2020s, allowing for the development of technology towards series manufacturing for the three OEMs in the second half of the decade.
