Ahead of the forthcoming Government Hydrogen Strategy, RIA has published a briefing highlighting the role hydrogen can play on the rail network, and calling for the Government to commit to train fleet orders.
It sets out how a hydrogen train fleet order could:
- Kickstart the decarbonisation of the rail network, which is an already low carbon form of transport;
- Support jobs, investment and economic growth at a critical time for the UK economy; and
- Back a burgeoning industry, with a fleet order catalysing further investment and providing an industry capability from which the UK could export abroad.
