Hydrogen Europe President Valérie Bouillon-Delporte has just unveiled plans to deploy 100,000 hydrogen-powered trucks, and 1,000 hydrogen stations to serve these trucks, by 2030 – a move applauded by the EU Commissioner for Transport Adina Vălean – during day one of the first ever European Hydrogen Week.
