Everfuel A/S has announced that the company has received €7.67 million in partial funding for eight hydrogen refuelling stations.
The funding is provided by the EU CEF AFIF programme, and will support the roll-out of hydrogen infrastructure across Northern Europe. Of the eight stations it is expected that one will be built in Germany, two in Sweden, and five in Denmark.
The eight stations are a part of the GREATER4H project led by STRING, which will deploy a total of 14 hydrogen refuelling stations along the main traffic corridor from Hamburg, Germany, to Oslo, Norway (the TEN-T Scandinavian-Mediterranean core network corridor). The two hydrogen refuelling stations in Norway are not funded by CEF. All stations will be able to supply 350 and 700 bar dispensers, which will allow for the refuelling of passenger vehicles and heavy-duty vehicles.
“With the funding from CEF we are one step closer to decarbonise the European road transport. Rolling out a network of accessible hydrogen stations is key to solving the 'chicken or egg' issue and offering an alternative to driving on fossil fuels. We are happy to contribute to achieving both European and national emission reduction targets, and have already secured the location for two of the eight stations,” says Jacob Krogsgaard, the CEO of Everfuel.
STRING is a membership organisation that connects local governments from Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, to collaborate on cross-border infrastructure development, facilitate the green transition in the transport sector, and accelerate innovation and export in green technology. Everfuel was invited by STRING to participate in the GREATER4H project as one of three private partners for providing hydrogen refuelling stations.
