Hungary to install its first public hydrogen filling station for heavy-duty vehicles

Hungary can submit four projects to the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF2) tender, that aims to support the deployment of alternative fuel infrastructure and the decarbonisation of transport along the TEN-T network.

If the projects with a total value of 8 billion forints (19.5 million euros) are supported, an additional 127 ultra-fast electric charging points can be established in Hungary at 25 locations.

In line with Hungary’s national hydrogen strategy, one of the projects submitted by Ral Elektro Ltd. set out the installment of the country’s first public hydrogen filling station for heavy-duty vehicles, next to the M1 highway. The other applicants – MVM Mobiliti, OMV Hungária and Ionity GmbH – plans to install charging stations for battery-powered electric cars.

Transport is responsible for about a fifth of Hungary’s total emissions and road traffic is responsible for 98 per cent of this. In October, the Ministry of Technology and Industry reported that the number of green vehicles exceeded sixty thousand and more than half of them are purely electric cars.
