Green mobility in local communities
In a context of increasingly severe environmental constraints, the transport sector must reinvent itself and offer technologies that tends towards zero CO2 emission to preserve citizen health and the environment while minimizing fossil fuels dependency.
In order to limit CO2 emissions and local pollutants due to private transport in a city or region, the hydrogen vehicle has many advantages: it is silent and does not emit any pollutant, only water steam.
In addition, its flexibility is close to that of thermal vehicles: a range of more than 600 km for sedan-type vehicles for a recharge time of a few minutes.
Getting out of the chicken and egg paradigm is a real challenge today when it comes to hydrogen mobility. Creating hydrogen ecosystems now, in order to make an example of sustainable mobility, is paving the way to encourage the adoption of this green fuel by as many people as possible and to scale up in the near future.
From soft mobility with hydrogen bikes, to a territorial network of hydrogen refueling stations, through a pilot project with a few cars or buses, your sustainable mobility project makes sense.
Case study : Zero Emission Valley (ZEV) in the Alps region
To be the first zero-emission territory in Europe, the Auvergne Rhône Alpes region has carried out a hydrogen ecosystem project with a network of 20 charging stations and 1,000 vehicles. This project of a scope of 70 million euros over 10 years was partly funded by the European Union (10.1 million euros), the Region (15 million euros) and ADEME (14,4 million euros). The first multi-pressure station with green hydrogen production by electrolysis, installed by Atawey, was inaugurated in February 2020 and has a capacity of 50 cars. In addition to the 1,000 vehicles planned by the ZEV project, 200 vehicles will be partly financed by ADEME, including 2 buses for Grand Chambéry, 50 light vehicles and 148 vans, which will be able to refill their fuel at the station.
