Hydrogen Fuel Cell Trucks And H2 Infrastructure Could Benefit From New Legislation

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Hydrogen Fuel News.

Politicians from both main parties in the United States are promoting a Hydrogen for Trucks Act, to support the conversion of domestic trucking from diesel to hydrogen.

These are the three main parts of the Act

  • Provide incentives for adopting hydrogen fuel cell trucks by covering the difference in cost between them and conventional diesel-powered vehicles.
  • Encourage tandem fueling station and vehicle deployment, to ensure that one doesn’t need to exist before the other is in place, solidifying the overall fueling infrastructure.
  • Collect data and establish benchmarks for various forms of fleet operation, helping to accelerate deployment by incentivizing private investment.

We could do with an Act like this in the UK.

But whereas the United States would start with hydrogen for trucks, we would probably start with hydrogen for buses.
