Article by Anita Panait, on January 18, 2012

The UKH2Mobility project has been launched, with the aim of ensuring that the UK is well positioned for the market roll-out of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles, according to Business Minister Mark Prisk. The program is an alliance between three UK departments and industrial participants from the utility, gas, infrastructure and car manufacturing sectors.

UKH2Mobility participants signed a Memorandum of Understanding to agree to share their knowledge and expertise. Under the program, the UK government will inject in around £400 million for “the development, demonstration and deployment of low and ultra-low-emission vehicles,” Prisk revealed.

 The Business Minister said that Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles is one of the viable options for a lower carbon motoring future, as they are highly efficient and has zero tail-pipes emission. “They can be fuelled in minutes, travel an equivalent range to a conventional combustion engine,” Prisk said.

Jerry Hardcastle, Vice-President for Vehicle Design and Development at Nissan said: "This is an important step for the automotive sector towards the development of clean vehicle technologies and zero emission mobility. It will lay many of the foundations for the commercial deployment of hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric vehicles which could represent a large segment of the UK market in the coming years. With this comprehensive list of partners we can be assured to have all the knowledge necessary to make UKH2 Mobility an exhaustive and credible study."
