ITM Motive will work closely with the Baglan Hydrogen Energy Centre at the University of South Wales and Ynni Glan, the clean energy consultancy specializing in fuel cells, hydrogen, solar, wind and bioenergy, on the development of a Welsh hydrogen refueling infrastructure. This initiative will complement ITM Power’s important existing Sheffield facilities and its activity in Yorkshire, the Isle of Wight and other activities across the UK and internationally.
The M4 motorway is a strong candidate for hydrogen refueling linking London with South Wales (which is part of the European route E30) via Swansea, Cardiff, Newport, Bristol and Swindon. The Welsh Government plans to make the Welsh section of the M4 a hydrogen corridor, to promote the use of ultra-low emission vehicles fueled by hydrogen.
