Making London a global centre for hydrogen
The Mayor wants London to be a world leader in hydrogen and fuel cell vehicle activity.
Powering a cleaner future
Hydrogen is a universal fuel that will play a major role in our clean, sustainable energy future. Coupled with fuel cells, hydrogen will increasingly provide us all with clean and secure energy to power our cars, buses, homes, businesses and personal smart technologies.
And, excitingly, if the hydrogen itself is produced from a carbon-neutral source such as London's waste, solar or wind power, we have the potential for carbon-neutral and emission-free energy.
Hydrogen fuel is a great way to power public and private transport in London. The only emission is water vapour – meaning no harmful pollution and cleaner air. We know it works too, as our RV1 bus already runs on it.
Through Hydrogen London we are bringing hydrogen and fuel cell technology to the capital, securing new jobs and investment, supporting London's green economy, improving energy security and air quality, and reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
See our hydrogen and fuel cells page for a quick introduction to this technology.
