ULEMCo awarded funding for hydrogen fuel lorries trial

ULEMCo has been awarded UK government funding to trial a range of vehicles with hydrogen dual-fuel technology. The funding is worth over £1.3m (US$1.6m), and will see large vans and trucks running on hydrogen dual-fuel. The overall aim of the £20m (US$25m) program is to cut emissions and improve air quality through use of cleaner fuel and electric vehicles.

The project will demonstrate both the emissions reduction potential of hydrogen replacing diesel, as well as the practical advantages of dual fuel operation.

London transport minister John Hayes said, “It is fantastic that ULEMCo is willing to explore low and zero emission technologies, which will help improve air quality and reduce pollution in towns and cities.

“This is yet another important, significant step toward this government’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions from transport to help tackle climate change. We are already making headway through our investment in low emission vehicles, greener public transport and walking and cycling, as well as grants for innovative advanced biofuels projects.”
