Retail giant Marks and Spencer have started to trial a hydrogen power scheme as part of their sustainable ‘Plan A’ initiative.
The six week trial will see M&S using ITM Power’s HFuel platform to generate hydrogen to power a fleet of fuel cell vehicles. The vans will be deployed at M&S’s 1.1million sq. ft. Prologis Park Distribution Centre.
Darrell Stein, Director of IT and Logistics for M&S said: “We are excited to be trialling this solution with a technology which has the potential to drive significant carbon reductions from our warehouse operations. If we’re to achieve our ambitious goal of becoming the world’s most sustainable major retailer then we must continue to innovate and push the boundaries in every part of our business”.
