Hydrogen Train Workshop Conclusions Published

Written on the 6th June, 2018

The Conclusions to the Hydrogen Trains Workshop have been published. The Workshop ‘ Hydrogen Trains: An Effective Alternative to Electrification?’ was held in Edinburgh on 22 May and over 70 participants came to the Workshop. Participants came roughly equally from the hydrogen and from the rail industries and a number of Government policymakers also came to the event.   The Workshop was organised by European Policy Solutions with the support of E4tech and Logan Energy.

The Workshop included presentations from the UK Government and European Commission.  Case studies from Germany, Toronto and the Northern Netherlands  were outlined and the technological challenges in developing fuel cell trains were also explained.    Alstom in partnership with Eversholt Rail  had recently announced their intention to convert 100 trains to fuel cell propulsion by 2021 and gave more information about their plan.

The Conclusions cover Policy Developments, Case Studies, The Business Case and Technological Developments, Challenges and Next Steps.  These can be found at Hydrogen Trains Workshop Conclusions
