Only On Monday,

I made this post,

about hydrogen powered scooters, in France, 

and then today I read about the UK's hydrogen-fuel cell electric cargo bike trial, which is being launched in Aberdeen, the electricity being produced to power small sized batteries to propel the cargo bike, meaning that the bikes will give out zero emissions, the bikes are made by Oxfordshire based manufacturer Electric Assisted Vehicles (EAV), who are building six eCargo bikes for the project, which is set to start in 2022, the thought being batteries are so heavy where as fuel cells are a lot lighter, it makes perfect sense, also “It’s a simple fact that the raw materials for battery production are in short supply.” said Adam Barmby, CEO and founder of EAV. “EAV focuses on weight reduction, so we use less energy and therefore require less batteries",

“The Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps, recently delivered a speech at the Dubai Expo 2020 stating that the UK will be taking a global lead in developing hydrogen-powered transport.” said Nigel Gordon-Stewart, executive chairman of EAV. “Nowhere is the use of hydrogen fuel cells in lightweight vehicles more effective than within the urban environment.” Go green, go clean, go hydrogen!
