Such vehicles are able to operate using renewable hydrogen, generated by feeding electricity generated by a biogas engine to an electrolyser, offering a model for the integration of vehicle fleets into a future renewable hydrogen economy. These were the outcomes of the trial of a hydrogen internal combustion engine light goods vehicle conducted in Stornoway, […]
The trial vehicles – one operating solely on biomethane gas, and one diesel powered – were highly comparable. Both were new registrations at trial commencement and met Enhanced Environmentally friendly Vehicle emission standards. Temporary gas vehicle refuelling infrastructure was installed at the CCE depot in Enfield, UK where the trial vehicles were operated from. Vehicle […]
Vehicle operators are under dual economic and environmental pressure to optimise fuel use and reduce the carbon emissions from fleets. The application of low carbon technologies has the potential to save on fuel costs and reduce CO2 emissions in fleets, but an absence of real-world data can be a disincentive to uptake.
