Facilities in Carlisle and North Yorkshire will be the first of their kind in the world
It’s wonderful to be able to announce our first motorway refuelling stations as reported in the Daily Telegraph, and there are plenty more in the pipeline. We are doing two very important things here:
1. By building the infrastructure we remove the barrier to the adoption of hydrogen by HGV fleets. This allows the transition from diesel to hydrogen to be speeded up, meaning faster cuts in greenhouse gas emissions and rapid improvements in air quality around major routes;
2. Our station architecture is designed to have a positive impact on the environment. The use of local materials, rainwater collection, and porous standings means that Element 2’s stations will work in harmony with the local environment instead of concreting it over. There is no reason why refuelling has to be a dirty business.
Everyone at Element 2 is fully committed to building a business that has a positive impact on the environment. It is the most important project that any of us have undertaken, and one that will rapidly improve quality of life for people across the UK by getting polluting diesel trucks off the road.
