New hydrogen filling station opens in South West London
ITM Power has opened its first publicly accessible hydrogen refuelling station in Teddington, with the promise of more to come later this year
At the same time, the minister announced a £2 million government fund to support the roll-out of hydrogen vehicles, saying: “We are committed to making all cars and vans zero-emission by 2050, and hydrogen vehicles have a huge role to play in delivering cleaner, greener journeys.
The Teddington refuelling station is close to the A316 and A308 trunk roads and is available for commercial and private fleets operating fuel-cell electric vehicles. It’s run by ITM Power, and teams from that company and BOC Linde are to commission and open a further four refuelling stations in and around London before the end of this year.
