This report details the trial of a hydrogen powered light goods vehicle conducted in Stornoway, Outer Hebrides, Scotland in July-August 2010. The trial involved the use of a demonstration Ford Transit converted by Revolve Technologies to a bi-fuel petrol/hydrogen internal combustion engine (HICE) vehicle operated by Royal Mail on two delivery routes out of its Stornoway delivery office over a six week period. Hydrogen fuel was provided by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar (Western Isles Council) via its H2seed facility. H2seed generates renewable hydrogen by feeding electricity generated by a biogas engine to an electrolyser. The trial sought to examine the reliability, ease of fuelling and usability of the vehicle and fuelling regime, and the suitability of the HICE vehicle in fleet operation.
