On 24 June, the team behind LIFE NEW HYTS will hold the project’s kick-off meeting in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
- Nieuwegein, Netherlands
The opening meeting will present this new LIFE project and its goals. Speakers will set out the latest state of play on hydrogen take-up at both EU and national levels. They will also explain what the covenant on hydrogen in mobility means for the Utrecht Province. And various hydrogen-powered vehicles will be on display. Participants will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the LIFE Programme.
About LIFE NEW HYTS
Hydrogen-powered fuel cell engines can play a crucial role in reducing the high carbon footprint of the transport sector. These engines are more suitable for heavy vehicles and travelling long distances than battery-powered electric vehicles. However, 95% of hydrogen is produced from fossil fuels. The LIFE NEW HYTS project, which supports the hydrogen ambitions of the Dutch province of Utrecht, will demonstrate the possibilities for the local production, distribution and use of green hydrogen for road transport. Also, the province will gather valuable data and offer practical support for accelerating the uptake of green hydrogen in transport in the area and elsewhere in Europe.
