Hydrogen for Transport Programme Webinar, 19th September
There‚Äôs a final chance to register for the Hydrogen for Transport Programme (HTP) webinar to be held from 14:30-16:00 on 19 September.
HTP sets out the next steps to develop the UK hydrogen vehicle market, providing up to ¬£23m of new grant funding until 2020 to support the growth of refuelling infrastructure alongside the deployment of new vehicles.
The HTP was launched on 17 August 2017 by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) to provide funding via open competition for both Hydrogen Refuelling Stations (HRS) and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
The¬†first stage awarded ¬£8.8 million to a project that will bring nearly 200 new hydrogen powered vehicles to the UK.¬† The next stage will commit up to ¬£14m to fund up to ten HRSs plus associated fleets.¬† The timetable of activities for Stage 2 is:
- 13 August 2018, stage 2 application window opened.
- 19 September 2018, stakeholder webinar – the HTP Project team will host a webinar to allow potential applicants to directly ask questions.
- 05 November 2018, application deadline date.
The funding will allow additional larger capacity HRS to be built, whilst optimising the utilisation of these and existing stations by providing funding to support the purchase of vehicle fleets that can be refuelled at all HRS.
