The Government has no current plans to introduce permanent hydrogen refuelling stations (HRSs) in that area. The £23m Hydrogen for Transport Programme will continue to support the development of hydrogen refuelling infrastructure via a competitive bidding process. Siting of stations is one of a number of criteria, and it is for the market to lead on developing strong bids for specific locations. In March this year the Government announced the winners of £8.8 million of funding, which will see the construction of additional hydrogen refuelling stations as well as upgrades to existing refuelling infrastructure.
