Norway Pioneers Hydrogen Revolution in Road Transport
Key Ideas
  • Norway is set to introduce a hundred new hydrogen trucks on its roads next year, marking a significant step towards emission-free road freight transport.
  • Hydrogen is being produced from renewable sources, resulting in CO2 emissions of less than one gramme per kilometre, making the trucks classified as emission-free vehicles.
  • The introduction of hydrogen trucks by MAN and the development of filling stations between key transport corridors in Norway aim to complement battery-driven haulage trucks for a more sustainable transport solution.
  • Efforts like the H2Truck project and investments in hydrogen technology by companies like MAN and Daimler Truck are vital in achieving ambitious emission reduction targets and promoting a greener future in transport.
The hydrogen revolution in road transport is gaining momentum in Norway as the country gears up to introduce a hundred new hydrogen trucks on its roads. Steffen Møller-Holst, Vice President for Marketing at SINTEF, emphasizes the importance of this initiative in achieving emission reduction targets. The hydrogen trucks, produced by MAN and powered by hydrogen from renewable sources, are set to be a game-changer in the road freight transport sector. These vehicles will have minimal CO2 emissions, qualifying them as emission-free. Norway's pioneering role in hydrogen production and research, along with efforts by companies like ASKO, MAN, and Daimler Truck, is paving the way for a sustainable transport future. The H2Truck project and plans for filling stations along key transport corridors demonstrate a commitment to integrating hydrogen technology into the existing transport infrastructure. By offering a viable and emission-free option for heavy transport, hydrogen trucks will complement battery-driven haulage trucks, ultimately contributing to Norway's emission reduction goals and promoting a greener approach to road transport.

Our vision is to be the world's leading online platform for advancing the use of hydrogen as a critical piece needed to deliver net-zero initiatives and the promise of a clean H2 energy future.
