Hydrogen Vehicle Systems (HVS) has announced that its chief commercial officer, John McLeister, will be participating in the prestigious ‘Big Debate: Future Trucks’ at the upcoming Road Transport Expo (RTX) in June.

This exciting event serves as a platform for industry leaders to discuss key challenges and innovations shaping the future of the transportation sector.

As the former director of sales and business development at Wrightbus, McLeister was instrumental in introducing the world’s first hydrogen double-decker bus to the UK market. He will now use his experience to set new benchmarks in product innovation and global business expansion for HVS.

The RTX ’Big Debate’ presents an exciting opportunity to share insight and expertise on the future of heavy-duty transportation.

McLeister will offer valuable perspectives on the role of hydrogen fuel cell technology in advancing sustainability in the transportation sector, as well as talking about the HVS ‘Transition to Zero Programme’ to help decarbonise fleets.

The ‘Transition to Zero Programme’ outlines HVS’s commitment to supporting potential partners in their journey towards zero-emission transportation, by sharing detailed insight, information and the resources necessary for a successful adoption of hydrogen trucks.

Participants in the programme are given the opportunity to trial an HVS hydrogen FCEV truck on their usual delivery routes and experience hydrogen re-fuelling equipment first-hand.

They are also given support with various aspects, including technology options, refuelling infrastructure, safety and regulation guidance, finance choices, government incentives, warranty information, training programmes for driving and maintenance, and fleet assessment.

Road Transport Expo’s ‘Big Debate: Future Trucks’, featuring HVS, will take place on the morning of 4 June at the event. It forms part of a three-day drop-in conference programme focused on the road transport sector’s topical issues.
