Nottingham’s first hydrogen filling station opens

A FUTURISTIC vision of a clean, green Nottingham has moved a step closer to reality with the completion of the city’s first filling station for hydrogen-powered cars.

Drivers of hydrogen cars will be able to fill up their tanks in Nottingham for the first time later this week, following the launch of an innovative sustainable energy research facility at The University of Nottingham.

Gavin Walker, professor in sustainable energy technologies, said:
‘The new refuelling station, which also includes electric car charging points, is one of around 10 such facilities across the UK. It will be used principally for the small fleet of hydrogen-powered cars that we are planning to run in connection with research projects based at the new Energy Technologies Building.’
