The Action aims to deploy 8 large-scale Hydrogen Refuelling Stations (HRS) in the Paris area, to support the market uptake of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV), especially taxi fleets with the aim to reach at least 5% zero-emission vehicles (e.g. approximately 2500 FCEVs) operating for the transport of persons by 2024 when the Olympic Games will take place in Paris.
The stations will be deployed in two phases. In the light of the results from the first phase, a reference design able to accelerate technical-economic progress in hydrogen distribution and supply will be established.
This Action has been selected in the context of the CEF Blending facility Call, where the CEF support is coupled with a substantial investment by a financial institution.
