Denmark gets EU money for 200 hydrogen buses

The EU has allocated EUR 40 million for 600 hydrogen buses, 200 of which will operate in Denmark. A Danish-Norwegian company will supply fueling stations for the entire EU project.

The EU is supporting the implementation of hydrogen-powered buses with EUR 40 million, one-third of which will go to Denmark. The buses will require fueling stations, which Danish-Norwegian-based NEL's H2Station in Herning, Denmark, will supply. NEL will supply not only Denmark but rather the entire network of fueling stations for the fleet of 600 buses in the UK, Latvia and Denmark, informs the Danish ministry of energy.

"It is very positive that the EU has decided to provide monetary support the implementation of hydrogen-powered buses. It comes as an added bonus that a Danish company will supply the associated hydrogen fueling stations. This simultaneously benefits both climate change mitigation and Danish jobs. We are now reaping the full reward for all the for our many years of funding research and development of hydrogen technology through the EUDP program;" says Danish Minister of Energy Lars Christian Lilleholt in a press statement.
