Industry collaboration seeks to accelerate HGV hydrogen refuelling innovation


Hy-Met is set to revolutionise the way vehicles can be sustainably and cost effectively fuelled using hydrogen, working alongside Logan Energy and WMG at the University of Warwick.

On 21 September, it was announced the trio will work to deliver the Hydrogen Prototype Equipment for Refuelling (HyPER) project, striving to reduce the cost of hydrogen refuelling and enable the wider adoption of hydrogen by transport fleets and other users.

This will see the group develop a next-generation hydrogen flowmeter for refuelling HGVs to be used for hydrogen refuelling systems and prove lightweight, smaller, more cost effective and more accurate than existing instruments. It will also be easier to manufacture and maintain than current options.

The project secured funding from the Department of Transport through Innovate UK as part of the zero emission road freight trials. Its total value is around £170,000.
