Hydrogen infrastructure takes first steps in Europe, amid technology uncertainty

Europe is demonstrating enthusiasm for hydrogen commercial vehicles, but the transport sector’s zero-emission technology of choice is far from decided. By Xavier Boucherat

The fuel cell truck partnership between Daimler and Volvo comes at a time when truckmakers in the EU are under the cosh to bring down carbon emissions.

Initial standards will therefore target trucks, before rules are extended to coaches and busses. By 2025, new truck fleets must achieve a 15% reduction on levels measured over the 2019 reporting period, and of 30% by 2030.
