Hydrogen refuelling station opens in London

A fleet of 20 double decker hydrogen-fueled buses and a matching refuelling station were launched today in London.

The London Hydrogen Refuelling Station (HRS), which is located in west London, will serve Transport for London’s (TfL) new fuel cell buses.

Four of these buses have been already delivered and will perform regular urban transport services in the English capital.

The station is designed to supply only buses, although it can potentially also be used to refuel other heavy duty vehicles.

The new hydrogen fuel cell double decker buses will reduce TfL’s carbon footprint and further reduce harmful emissions to help ensure Londoners breathe cleaner air.

Currently, London has 9,000 buses in operation, and plans to make all buses in London to be run either on electric battery or hydrogen, by 2037.
