A planned new nuclear plant at Sizewell could also be a centre of hydrogen production for vehicle use, and the plant developer is seeking expressions of interest for partners to produce hydrogen and use it to run heavy vehicles at the site on the Suffolk coast. The initiative could be the precursor to scaling up hydrogen production for use as transport fuel and in other applications. The power plant company EDF Energy sees the East of England as a potential […]
Two specific issues have been identified with hydrogen that the truck sector needs to deal with: firstly, the development and construction of efficient fuel cells. Then secondly, the distribution of hydrogen to ensure that trucks can be refuelled safely and quickly.
Over 14 tonnes of CO2 has been saved in a two year project by the Low Emission Freight and Logistics Trial (LEFT) involving just 11 urban trucks and vans running on green hydrogen dual fuel.
The use of hydrogen as a fuel for trucks is being trialled in the Netherlands, with a 27-tonne rigid being operated in retail logistics.
