Plans for hydrogen fuelling stations across Europe

Public and private partnership project will accelerate the transition to hydrogen vehicles

Local and regional governments in Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, along with six private companies, have initiated a cross-border public/private partnership to invest in a series of hydrogen fuelling stations across Europe.

If approved, the project Greater4H will act as a catalyst in speeding up deliveries of hydrogen vehicles from vehicle manufacturers and will accelerate their deployment across the entire megaregion – making Northern Europe a global frontrunner in the transition to green road transport.

The private partners, Everfuel, Hynion, and GP Joule, will build and operate the refuelling stations. Quantron will supply hydrogen vehicles in different weight categories, in addition to leading the development of financial and market incentives needed to increase demand for hydrogen trucks.

In addition, Ørsted and Renova have joined Greater4H as associated partners to contribute perspectives on the supply of green hydrogen and end-user perspective as operators of hydrogen trucks. The 13 public authorities in STRING will contribute to Greater4H by encouraging harmonised regulation related to the roll-out of hydrogen infrastructure.

Minister of justice, European affairs and consumer protection, Claus Christian Claussen, said, “A zero-emission transport sector is only possible with a zero-emission fuelling network. If we succeed, Greater4H will be a great leap forward for the green transition, and it will illustrate how we can achieve full decarbonisation of road transport.”
