Government is supporting development of the infrastructure for hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), recognising that the market is at an early stage. Government’s £23m Hydrogen for Transport Programme aims to increase the uptake of FCEVs and grow the number of publicly accessible hydrogen refuelling stations. The programme is delivering nine new refuelling stations, upgrading five existing stations and deploying hundreds of new hydrogen vehicles across the UK.
