Cleaner Transport in the Nordic region
Statkraft and Everfuel to join Hyundai, Toyota and Hydrogen Sweden in an EU-supported initiative to explore hydrogen road transport in Sweden.
Hydrogen Sweden (Vätgas Sverige) takes over the project management for the Nordic Hydrogen Corridor (NHC) initiative aiming at providing zero emission transport solutions based on hydrogen in Sweden, including vehicles, hydrogen production and distribution. New partners are Statkraft, Europe’s largest producer of renewable energy, and the green hydrogen fuel distributor Everfuel. In addition, the car producers Hyundai and Toyota continue as partners.
Initially around 40 different cities and municipalities have expressed an interest in hydrogen-based zero emission transport in Sweden. The NHC-partners are working with the most promising locations to ensure that there is sufficient demand before taking investment decisions and moving the initiative over to the execution phase. The total budget will then be 20M€ and the initiative will be co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF).
