Grant scheme for hydrogen refuelling stations opens
The first stage of a new funding competition for both Hydrogen Refuelling Stations (HRS) and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles has opened.
Announced by the government earlier this year, the new Hydrogen for Transport Programme (HTP) provides up to £23m of matched funding capital grants until 2020 to support the growth of refuelling infrastructure alongside the deployment of new vehicles by captive fleets.
The first stage, now open, will commit up to £9m to 50:50 match fund around seven HRSs to be completed in 2018/19, plus captive fleets. Funding will commence in November 2017.
Stage 2 will commit up to £14m to fund up to 10 HRSs plus captive fleets and will begin in December 2018, subject to market developments over Stage 1.
The programme is being run by Ricardo Energy & Environment on behalf of OLEV.
