The UK's first open access hydrogen refuelling station in Swindon is a central part of a project awarded funding in July 2012 from the Technology Strategy Board and the Department for Energy and Climate Change. The project aims to supply green hydrogen to the refuelling station for multiple vehicle use and a significant part of the benefit of the project is the fact that it builds on the previous investment in this unique facility. The total cost of the project is £3.5m and it has been awarded a grant of £1.75m. It is one of five projects funded in a programme with a total value - including business contributions, of over £19m - with grant funding of £7.5m from the Technology Strategy Board and £1.5m from the Department for Energy and Climate Change.
