Event description

Description

The Hydrogen Hub Car showcase in August 2017 brought 7 vehicles from the major OEMs technology developers, current users of technology and hydrogen and fuel cell experts together to deliver a workshop for local business and fleet users. The cars were then opened up to the public in the afternoon. The event was a resounding success.

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 Swindon on 12th April is the first of a series of 5 events which will take this showcase on the road. 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 Swindon businesses can get involved in the next phase of cars.
