European Commission seeks to promote hydrogen powered vehicles

European Commission seeks to promote hydrogen powered vehicles

To boost consumer confidence and facilitate the commercialisation of hydrogen powered vehicles, the Commission plans to set new safety requirements for such vehicles and incorporate them into the European type-approval framework. As a first step, the Commission is asking for the views of stakeholders and the general public on planed new rules to ensure the safe operation.

The Commission has set itself the objective of substituting 20% of traditional fuels with alternatives by 2020, identifying hydrogen as one of the most promising alternative ranges of fuels.
Hydrogen-fuelled motors do not produce any carbon emissions or greenhouse gases, contrarily to diesel and petrol, and will therefore contribute to the improvement of air quality.
For more information read press release and preliminary draft proposal.
