A fourth public hydrogen filling station opens in London

On October 11, ITM Power opened its fourth public hydrogen car charging station in London. Hydrogen is produced at the Center for Excellence in Engineering and Manufacturing (CEME) in Rainham, East London, by electrolysis of water using photovoltaic energy.
The station is part of a HyFIVE project co-financed by the European Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking and the UK Low Emission Vehicle Office (OLEV). The aim of the project is to demonstrate fuel cell cars in several European areas through the early use of more than 120 vehicles and 6 hydrogen filling stations. After the first two existing London stations, Rainham is the second London station opened as part of this project. The first opened in Teddington in May this year, and the third is scheduled to open in Cobham. The other three HyFIVE stations are located in Innsbruck, Austria, and in the Danish cities of Aaarhus and Korsor.
