Hydrogen Infrastructure and Vehicle Deployment consortium project funding proposal for the European Joint Technology Initiative. Presented by Kit Malthouse Deputy Mayor of London and Chair of the London Hydrogen Partnership At the WHEC Seminar - Local Hydrogen Infrastructure Development in Europe: driving it to the future!
Overview London Hydrogen Partnership Private/Public sector Partnership Supported by the Mayor of London and Greater London Authority Promoting Hydrogen technology in the capital to - improve energy security and air quality Reduce greenhouse gases and noise Support London's green economy London Hydrogen Action Plan 2010/12 - Main Aims: Sets out project proposals which meet and support the Mayor of London’s Environment and Economic policy aims and objectives Move beyond demonstrations and trials and develop actual Hydrogen and Fuel Cell projects
Infrastructure Deliver a Series of Interconnecting Hydrogen Refuelling Facilities in London by 2012 Deployment of a minimum of six pieces of hydrogen refueling infrastructure in the capital by Vehicle Deployment Deliver demonstration & deployment projects of early commercial Hydrogen powered vehicles Ambition to deploy a minimum of 150 hydrogen powered vehicles in the capital by functional body hydrogen powered vehicles running by Delivery
Hydrogen bus and cars refuelling and maintenance infrastructure, currently under construction (completion date Summer 2010) London has deployed and continues to deploy hydrogen vehicles London took part in both the original CUTE Project and the subsequent HyFLEET:CUTE extension which ran from and saw: 3 fuel cell buses operating in London for a total of 12,800 hours and 180,000 km the construction of a refuelling facility and designated maintenance workshop Transport for London is building on this experience to deploy a new project operational from late 2010 with: Up to 5 new fuel cell hybrid buses A new refuelling and maintenance facility and potential second refuelling facility
London infrastructure expansion
London now wishes to form or join a consortium to submit an application for lighthouse project funding to the European Joint Technology Initiative. The programme in London would be designed around high utilization and long range urban vehicles. Whilst no decision has been made as to the exact vehicles to be deployed, these might include: Taxis Delivery vans Motorbikes Passenger cars London wishes to submit a bid to the JTI as part of a consortium We would also aim to deploy 2 new refuelling sites as part of the project We are seeking city partners with similar aspirations.
Vehicles will be selected for the proposal on the basis of: The vehicle suppliers providing match funding for the vehicle purchase Users having been identified within the range of London’s urban users – where the vehicles play a clear role within their fleets Vehicle suppliers having a clear business plan which leads to vehicles available for purchase in London by 2015 A minimum of 10 vehicles from a single provider London also wishes to promote national industry development through the project. Dependent on the exact nature of the call and the final consortium, London will look to deploy urban vehicles. The bid would demonstrate a clear path to commercialisation
Meeting: I would like to formally invite HyRaMP regions who are interested in participating to attend a follow up meeting at City Hall in London on the 7 th June 2010 and the Launch of the TfL Fuel Cell Buses in November (date tbc) For further information please contact: Daniel Pizarro, London Hydrogen Partnership Manager, Greater London Authority, City Hall, London.
