Breakthru of hydrogen-fuelled transport in Copenhagen
The first wave of hydrogen-powered taxis are now cruising the streets of Copenhagen. The taxi company DRIVR has invested in eight new, environmentally sustainable taxis, which were launched at a ceremony attended by the Danish Minister for Transport, Building and Housing in Refshaleøen, a new innovative quarter in Copenhagen.
The taxis have been made possible with support from the Danish Ministry for Tranport, Building and Housing and the H2ME project, which falls under the auspices of the European Union financed Horizon 2020 initiative, the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking. Known as FCH 2 JU, the initiative aims to accelerate the market entry of fuel cells and hydrogen technologies. More specifically, the H2ME project, which received EUR 32 million in funding and commenced in 2015, is working towards increasing the number of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) operating on Europe’s roads.
