Zero-emission vehicle manufacturer, Tevva, and combined heat and power plant manufacturer, 2G Energy, join a collaboration of multi-million dollar corporations, stakeholders, and academic organisations, with interest in clean energy solutions.
Launched in 2010, following the merger of Fuel Cells UK and the UK Hydrogen Association, the UK HFCA is the oldest and largest nationwide UK association, advocating for and accelerating the transition to Net Zero through the deployment of hydrogen and fuel cell solutions.

Commenting on the new memberships, Celia Greaves, CEO of the UK HFCA, said, “There is strength in numbers and together, our members wield a power and a voice that they wouldn’t have alone.
“Our collective ambition is to accelerate the development and deployment of hydrogen energy and its uses in the UK. Having this breadth of membership gives us improved access to funding, the ability to share and shape best practice, enhanced positioning and profile, with benefits for all members, and a stronger role in helping to shape the direction and focus of government regulations and policy.
“We are thrilled to welcome our latest members and involving them in the fantastic work we are and will be doing.”
Tevva launched its first hydrogen fuel-cell supported heavy goods vehicle (HGV) in June (2022), which it said would be the first of its kinds to be designed, manufactured and produced on mass in the UK.
Harsh Pershad, Head of Hydrogen at Tevva, said, “Tevva is delighted to be formally associated with the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association.
“With energy costs, security, and climate breakdown foremost in people’s minds, it is now essential for industry, government and wider stakeholders to support each other to implement the fastest, most resilient and cost-effective solutions for decarbonising the economy.
“Tevva is manufacturing hydrogen electric trucks that will directly reduce fleet operator emissions from day one. Hydrogen electric trucks enable the best mix of energy for longer journeys and allow fleets to help promote sustainable energy infrastructure growth.
“Tevva is committed to help fleet operators access convenient, affordable and sustainable hydrogen supplies to maximise the benefits of hydrogen electric trucks.”
In June (2022), the organisation hosted its first conference at the NEC in Birmingham, attracting over 500 attendees, and was opened by Greg Hands, UK Energy Minister.
Jake Martin Hydrogen Business Development Manager at Haskell, and Michaela Kendall, co-founder and CEO of Adelan, spoke with H2 View at the 18th UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Conference at the NEC in Birmingham. Watch below:
