This document provides an interim summary of H2ME results
The H2ME initiative is a flagship European project, deploying hundreds of fuel cell hydrogen cars, vans and trucks and the associated refuelling infrastructure, across 8 countries in Europe.
It will create the first truly pan-European network, and the world’s largest network of hydrogen refuelling stations.
The project is made up of two phases, H2ME (1), which started in 2015, and H2ME-2, which will end in 2022. Over the course of these two phases, more than 1400 vehicles and 45+ hydrogen refuelling stations will be deployed.
The project is being supported by the European Union through the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH 2 JU) but is driven by the continuous engagement of the industry.
This documents provides a summary of the project status, highlights key achievements and also suggests some of the emerging issues which need to be tackled by the fuel cell vehicle sector as it moves towards a commercially viable mass market proposition.
This is a living document that will be updated as the project progresses. It is intended to:
- Give first hand information to stakeholders, policy-makers etc.;
- Align H2ME partners on the common themes emerging from the early demonstration results;
- Serve as a basis for additional dissemination materials.
The entire document consists of 5 chapters – chapter 1 introduction could be downloaded here.
