A consortium including ITM Power, Shell, Toyota, Honda and Hyundai has won £8.8 million in funding from the British Department for Transport. They are to improve the UK’s network of hydrogen filling stations by improving existing ones and also installing new sites.
Out of the 8.8 million pounds total, ITM Power will receive 4.3 million pounds from the DfT to build four new hydrogen refuelling stations and to upgrade five existing hydrogen refuelling stations.
The DfT grant will be matched by a further £13.1m investment including support from the companies and the European Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU).
