Event description

Description

The National Hydrogen Summit, hosted by the University of Leeds and Leeds City Council on 27-28 June will bring together key stakeholders from academia, industry, government and civil society to identify key challenges and opportinities in a potential move to a hydrogen economy. On 28 June the focus will be on looking at how to ensure the policy and regulatory environment required to succcessfully implement projects.

The Arval Hydrogen Roadshow on 28 June is part of this event and comprises a display of hydrogen cars in the Victoria Gardens area all day and a workshop at 2pm at the Leeds Art Gallery Henry Moore Room.

With new refuelling stations recently opened or shortly opening in London, Birmingham, Beaconsfield and Derby and plans in Oxford and Cardiff, the Arval Hydrogen Roadshow in Leeds on 28th June is the third of a series of 5 events. It is being held by fleet management and leasing specialist, Arval, with the aim to bring together business people, influencers such as local politicians, and the general public, to show them hydrogen vehicles from manufacturers such as Toyota, Hyundai and Riversimple, and explain how the technology works. There will be representatives from companies in Swindon that are currently using the vehicles who will be sharing their experiences including Arval, the National Trust, Nationwide and the Science Museum Group.

Hydrogen Fuel Cell vehicles are the latest cutting edge green technology. The vehicles are zero emission vehicles with zero CO2, NOx, SOx and particulates emitted. They offer the low carbon green credentials of battery electric vehicles but with the user experience benefits of petrol diesel. Fuel cell vehicles take 3 minutes to refill and have a range of 300 miles.

These cars from Toyota and Hyundai Motor were brought to Swindon under an OLEV (Office for Low Emissions Vehicles) funding scheme. The benefits of this technology are recognised by the UK Government and as such there is a new funding competition that will enable further companies to access the cars. There will be information at the event as to how businesses can get involved in the next phase of cars.
