Jo Bamford calls for more capital investment in hydrogen

The man behind plans for 3,000 hydrogen buses to be deployed across the UK says a report by think-tank Policy Exchange, calling for more capital investment in hydrogen, is exactly the kind of action the UK Government should be taking.

Jo Bamford, who owns hydrogen energy producer Ryse Hydrogen and Northern Ireland-based bus company Wrightbus, has been pushing for investment in the technology to help get the hydrogen economy moving.
