For the test, Air Products provided a mobile hydrogen generator which managed to successfully provide fuel for a CaetanoBus which ultimately travelled 600km on Spanish routes whilst carrying no passengers.
This allowed the bus to be monitored for on-road data and support the growing hydrogen mobility sector.
A key outcome of this test is that refuelling with hydrogen can be very fast and thus does not have many major differences when compared to contemporary means of refuelling vehicles.
This could help with the wider adoption of hydrogen mobility solutions within Spain.
Miquel Lope, General Director of Carburos Metálicos, said, “This successful test of a renewable hydrogen bus in the city of Toledo, known for the great unevenness of its streets, demonstrates once again that it is a mature technology and ready to contribute to decarbonising heavy transport in any city.
“Carburos Metálicos will continue promoting its development as one of its main strategic lines.”
North American Hydrogen Summit
H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.
As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.
With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
