Green Hydrogen for Trains

A zero emissions alternative to expensive electric infrastructure

Our green hydrogen generation systems can be retrofitted to diesel trains, allowing locations across the UK to reach net-zero where alternative renewable sources aren’t economically available.

Decarbonising the production of hydrogen, enabling a green transport fuel for trains.

Hydrogen trains use a fuel cell electric powertrain to provide a zero emissions alternative to diesel trains in regions where railway electrification isn’t economically viable.

Electric trains are common in cities and on the mainlines of national networks, but elsewhere diesel trains are required and these cause very substantial atmospheric emissions.

Hydrogen trains offer a means for both eradicating these emissions and switching to a sustainable green fuel, without requiring the deployment of expensive and ugly electrification infrastructure along rail tracks. They can be refuelled at the main depot or depots serving a region, by employing large scale electrolysers and hydrogen refuelling facilities.
