Shell has closed all its hydrogen fueling stations in the UK. As the energy company explained to Hydrogen Insight, the closure of the three H2 filling stations is related to, “They are our first-generation prototype sites and the technology has reached the end of its life.
Shell’s focus in the UK is now to explore ways to “develop multiple model centers for heavy trucks”. In other words, filling stations are unprofitable for some hydrogen cars and, according to Operator Motiv, there is very little space that cannot be upgraded for larger vehicles and future technologies.
According to Hydrogen Insight, there are now only 11 public H2 filling stations in the UK, compared to more than 57,000 public charging points for electric vehicles.
