The H2Accelerate collaboration has been formed by truck OEMs Daimler Truck, IVECO, and Volvo Group, and hydrogen infrastructure players OMV, Shell, and TotalEnergies, to accelerate the deployment of green hydrogen for trucking, welcoming Linde as the seventh member of the collaboration
Linde is a global leader in the production, processing, storage, and distribution of hydrogen and has built close to 200 hydrogen refuelling stations to date, including for heavy-duty vehicles.
Linde is part of over twenty industry and government-sponsored organisations around the world that are focused on accelerating the transition to clean energy, with hydrogen at its core.
?We are committed to helping the world reach its climate targets by contributing with our knowledge, expertise and infrastructure to the development of the hydrogen economy,?stated David Burns, vice-president, Clean Energy Development.
?The task ahead is large and complex. We need to work together to come up with timely solutions to tackle climate change. Trucking is one of the sectors that can substantially reduce its emissions by switching from diesel to clean hydrogen and we are very glad to be part of the H2Accelerate collaboration, to facilitate and drive that switch.?
Ben Madden, spokesperson for the H2Accelerate collaboration, said, ?Linde?s knowledge and experience in developing hydrogen production and refuelling facilities adds to an already impressive set of hydrogen fuel providers within the H2Accelerate collaboration. With joint efforts from truck OEMs and hydrogen refuelling players, the H2Accelerate collaboration will allow the hydrogen trucking sector to reach mass market scale on the timelines required to achieve ambitious climate objectives. The addition of Linde?s expertise and commitment to the collaboration will increase the speed at which a European hydrogen refuelling network that is truly capable of serving end user needs can be rolled out. We are excited to be working with Linde to achieve this goal.?
