ITM Power’s Transportable Hydrogen Refuelling Station (HFuel) is a self-contained module suitable for refuelling hydrogen-powered road vehicles and forklift trucks. HFuel is well suited to small fleet and early ‘hydrogen highway’ applications of both fuel cell and hydrogen engine vehicles (FCV and HICEV). It is based around a modular platform (standard freight containers) and can be expanded at any point after the initial installation enabling a staged roll-out of hydrogen fuel.

200km/h top-speed. Range of 400km on a single charge. Just 6hrs to re-charge using a normal socket. This student-built car has been tried and tested all the way from Alaska to Argentina. The epic road trip was aimed at shattering the public perception of electric vehicles as slow, unattractive and of limited range. Is there a more perfect challenge than tackling the longest road on the planet in our electric supercar? The adventure is available on a DVD filmed and directed by the maker of the the 'Long Way Round' series.
As an eco designer it won’t come as a surprise that I'm no petrol head motoring journalist but I have had the chance to drive a number of pure electric cars over the years - many with varying degrees of success and just a little anxiety.
Chargemaster will be displaying their POLAR charging point at the 2012 Eco-Rally start line. All the electric entrants in this year's Eco-Rally will make use of existing charging points around Oxford in preparation for the 65 mile trip to London. The growing network of charging points will give Oxford one of the highest densities of charging points anywhere in Europe, courtesy of the POLAR network. All of these sites will soon provide the ability to fast charge suitably equipped cars at a rate over twice as fast as standard charging. POLAR is the UK’s national, privately-funded, electric car charging infrastructure expected to cover the 100 largest towns and cities across the country in the near future.
A POD Point Solo charge unit will be temporarily installed at the Ace Cafe to support the 2012 Oxford to London Eco-Rally. Electric vehicle owners living within the M25 are to be offered free home charging units as part of a year-long trial into usage. The Low Carbon London project has signed an agreement with POD Point and UK Power Networks which will see owners given the units worth over £1,000 if they agree to take part. The new project is working towards the goal of reducing the Capital’s emissions by 60% by 2025, and will measure how and when people charge their vehicles. Results from the trial will be used develop London’s electricity networks into a reliable and sustainable low carbon electricity network.
