A new project to create a nationwide Hydrogen fueling infrastructure in Great Britain had its kickoff meeting at Nissan Technical Centre Europe (NTCE) in Bedfordshire. The project is called UK-HyNet and aims to create a complete infrastructure to support the hydrogen economy by 2015. According to Nissan, the network will help the widespread use of hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicles (HFCVs), which are expected to become more common by 2015. The project is part of Great Britain’s Hydrogen Roadmap. The press release, which you can read after the jump, lumps together the future of both pure electric vehicles and HFCVs by using the term low-carbon mobility. The Brits will be able to compare their H2 progress with a nearby country, Norway, to see how they’re doing.
