Shell has announced the launch of its first hydrogen refuelling station in the UK, located at its Cobham service station on the M25 and is one of three hydrogen stations Shell plans on opening in the UK this year and a network of 400 sites in various countries by 2023.

Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles convert hydrogen into electricity and produce heat and water when driven, offering an alternative to the conventional internal combustion engine with no emissions and can be driven up to 700 kilometres without refuelling.

Matthew Tipper, Vice President, Future Fuels at Shell said: “Hydrogen has the potential to become a clean and versatile transport fuel for the future and the Cobham hydrogen site is one of the ways Shell is encouraging the use of alternative fuels to contribute to the energy transition. This will provide customers with hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles the ability to refuel simply and quickly, at one of the largest petrol stations in the UK.”

A total of 13 energy, transport and industrial companies have joined forces to invest €10.7 (£9.2m) in hydrogen technologies in the next five years.

‘If you are looking for the installation of solar panels, then Redmile Energy are the people to approach! After a thorough survey of our home, they gave us three quotes then arranged a date for installation within three weeks, all of this at less than half the price of the “big boys” for exactly the same panels!'

Rev I Friars
'The survey was to a much higher level of service than we had seen from others. The survey was very thorough rather than the "the fitters would sort that out on the day" that we had from others. Communications were prompt and they carried out our installation quickly to make sure we beat a drop in the feed in tariff'

Mr Clarke
'No pushy salesmen here, just people who appeared honest and straightforward. I had quotes or visits from other companies, but found their sales people far too intimidating. All work completely neatly and tidily on time and to agreed budget.  Could not ask for more.'
