Ways to step up decarbonisation of HGVs
BP and the energy company BOC have completed a detailed joint feasibility study exploring optimised designs for a potential hydrogen distribution and supply network for heavy duty transports in UK.
The study concluded that, in the near-term, distribution of hydrogen as compressed gas via road trailer is the best option to stimulate the UK market for hydrogen fuel for heavy duty transport. Over the longer term, as the market expands into new geographies, both liquid and gaseous hydrogen have potential to play a role.
BP and BOC are now exploring opportunities to collaborate to design and deploy an initial network for heavy duty transport hydrogen refuelling infrastructure in UK. (ben)
