Implementation of hydrogen filling stations and hydrogen vehicles on a large scale
H2 Mobility Europe 1 / 2
2016 - 2022
Within the European project "H2ME", 29 hydrogen filling stations have been built and 325 hydrogen vehicles have been put into use on a large scale. Within H2ME 2, the successor of the first project, 20 stations are being built and more than 1100 cars are put into use.
The H2ME2 project started in May 2016 and is built on the expertise H2ME 1. It will significantly expand the European hydrogen fleet, confirming the technical and commercial readiness of vehicles, filling stations and hydrogen production techniques. With its more than 1,100 cars, vans and trucks and 20 HRS, H2ME2 will make recommendations and identify any gaps that could prevent full commercialization. Results are also collected to support future investments.
The aim of this large-scale rollout at European level is to maximize cooperation between the member states. Moreover, the use of larger numbers (stations and vehicles) can also significantly reduce costs, both in terms of investment and maintenance.
The role of WaterstofNet
WaterstofNet is the point of contact for the Benelux within the project and provides
the communication regarding the progress and the state of affairs from and to the Benelux.
We also act as coordinator of the 'observer countries' and we support the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management in project tasks for the Dutch partners.
