UK-wide hydrogen trials for HGVs to start next year

CNG Fuels has pledged to dedicate 100 acres of its land portfolio to hydrogen HGV refuelling by 2025

Pathway to COP26 report

Low carbon fuel supplier CNG Fuels has unveiled plans to launch hydrogen fuel trials next year for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) across its UK-wide network of biomethane refuelling points.

The company said is currently negotiating with international partners and undertaking feasibility studies across its new development sites.

By 2025, the company plans to allocate 100 acres of its land to public access hydrogen refuelling.

According to figures, HGVs account for 16% of UK transport emissions.

It is expected that medium-duty trucks will be among the first viable for technologies such as hydrogen.

Philip Fjeld, Chief Executive Officer of CNG Fuels, said: “HGVs alone account for 5% of all UK emissions, making their decarbonisation one of the single most important things the UK can do to meet our net zero ambitions.

“Renewable biomethane is and will continue to be the most effective decarbonisation solution for heavy transport for many years.”
