Nottingham's first hydrogen filling station opens

Drivers of hydrogen cars can now fill up their tanks in Nottingham following the launch of a sustainable energy research facility at The University of Nottingham.

The £9m Energy Technologies Building on The University of Nottingham Innovation Park will provide a catalyst for the University's research into low carbon emissions.

Hydrogen energy is a strategic research focus for the University and an important new technology for the decarbonisation of the transport sector.

The new refuelling station, which also includes electric car charging points, is one of around 10 such facilities across the UK. It will be used principally for the small fleet of hydrogen-powered cars that we are planning to run in connection with research projects based at the new Energy Technologies Building.
