About the project
H2GVMids is a 9 months feasibility study project funded by Innovate UK through the Zero Emissions Road Freight Competition. The project aims to carry out pre-deployment work on a hydrogen fuel cell truck demonstration in the Midlands, involving the full value chain for hydrogen HGV operation, development and refuelling for a hydrogen truck trial with a lease-based delivery model.
The project, which aims to be an exemplar of decarbonising road freight in the UK, is led by EDF R&D UK with support from the Energy Research Accelerator (ERA). Since the project’s start in July 2021, EDF R&D UK has been working alongside the consortium which includes other partners such as Cenex, Arcola Energy, Toyota, Intelligent Energy and ITM Motive, to prepare the ground for a green hydrogen fuelled 44-tonne fuel cell truck demonstration programme in the Midlands.
