Agreement to bring hydrogen supply to UK rail

14 July 2021

H2 Green, the hydrogen network operator, has entered into an agreement with railway rolling stock owner Eversholt Rail to develop hydrogen supply solutions for the UK railway.

The two will work together to determine the production and refuelling infrastructure required to support wide-scale deployment of hydrogen-powered rolling stock fleets. The focus is on providing low-cost and reliable green hydrogen, produced by electrolysis of water using renewable energy sources, with the aim of enabling the rapid deployment of hydrogen rolling stock for the UK railway system.

Eversholt Rail recognises the benefits that hydrogen powered trains will deliver and has an established relationship with leading rolling stock manufacturer Alstom. Alstom developed and deployed the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell trains, the Coradia iLint, into passenger service in Lower Saxony, Germany, in 2018.

H2 Green is working to deliver security of supply by developing a network of large-scale production hubs across the UK. H2 Green is well positioned to provide train operators with a guaranteed supply of green hydrogen wherever they need it.
