BOC continues to develop its UK hydrogen hub funding model

BOC says that it is committed to continuing with its plan for hydrogen refuelling stations across the UK, despite its decision to exit the LNG market.

“BOC continues to develop and deploy its hub funding model for hydrogen refuelling stations across the UK,” it says in a statement to ITT Hub News.

“BOC is working closely with councils and local authorities to provide the infrastructure required to decarbonise buses and larger service vehicles like gritters and refuse trucks. 

“Bringing together a number of users to share a hydrogen refuelling facility or a ‘hub’ creates regular demand for hydrogen, maximises the procurement potential for councils and offers a clear strategy and a coherent investment opportunity to decarbonise transport.”

It adds that hydrogen is already cited as one of the key pillars in the Government’s ten-point plan for a green industrial revolution, but with the publication of ‘Bus Back Better: National Bus Strategy for England’ in March 2021, Government has further signposted hydrogen as a fuel to support its ambition to achieve a net-zero bus fleet.

The Government has also announced ZEBRA (Zero Emission Regional Area), a £120m scheme to support low carbon buses.
