The flagship Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME) project involving more than 50 organisations at the forefront of the sector has today published its final Emerging Conclusions report. The report details key findings and learnings from the H2ME (2) project. The release of the Emerging Conclusions document marks the end of the European flagship project and highlights its contributions to hydrogen mobility. The project has supported 49 hydrogen refuelling stations (HRS) and >1,400 Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs), up to a third of all HRS & FCEVs deployed in Europe to date.

The initiative, supported by funding from the Clean Hydrogen Partnership (formerly Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking), has brought together action in nine European countries.

The H2ME project has demonstrated the potential for FCEVs as a green mobility solution, by proving the reliability of FCEVs, and identifying niches where they complement battery electric vehicles (BEVs).

Prior to H2ME, the European FCEV market was still in its early stages, but now, with increased deployment and expanding fleets, including taxis and vans, H2ME has played a pivotal role in catalysing broader activity across various vehicle segments, marking a significant shift in hydrogen mobility adoption. Vehicles reporting data to H2ME have driven >40 million km, with one reporting a range of 650km on a single refuel. A total of 12 different models of FCEV have been deployed through H2ME. HRS reporting data to H2ME have dispensed 917,000 kg of hydrogen in 361,000 refuelling events.

Icelandic New Energy was a partner to the H2ME (2) project, acting as coordinator for activities in Scandinavia.
