Following its launch in the summer of 2015, the H2ME project has built strong foundations in three of its key objectives: vehicle deployment, refuelling infrastructure expansion and increased public awareness of hydrogen mobility.
The first vehicles were delivered to customers within 3 months of the project start and there are now over 50 fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) from Daimler and Symbio FCell in the hands of customers and in operation in France and Germany. In parallel, the analysis of vehicles and customer experience has begun.
The first hydrogen refuelling station (HRS) built under H2ME was opened to the public on March 3rd 2016, well ahead of schedule. The opening of the H2 Logic HRS in Kolding (Denmark) was a public launch event where the public were given the opportunity to trial FCEVs.
In addition to planning several upcoming events, H2ME has already presented at two major hydrogen and fuel cell technology conferences, one in Brussels (the FCH JU Stakeholder Forum) and the other in Paris (HyVolution), engaging with businesses, local authorities, important policy makers, and politicians alike.
Quick out the gate and in a strong position, momentum is building for H2ME.
