Australia's first hydrogen vehicle refuelling station opens

AGL energy subsidiary ActewAGL has opened Australia's first public hydrogen vehicle refuelling station in Fyshwick.

The filling station produces its own hydrogen gas on-site by capturing rainwater and creating the fuel using specialist equipment.

The ACT Government's has purchased 20 Hyundai Nexo hydrogen vehicles.

Interestingly Hydrogen gas is sold by the kilogram at a price of around $10 per kg and a car can be filled from empty in five minutes.

The Hyundai Nexo can travel over 660 kilometres on a full tank of 6kg of Hydrogen at a cost of $90 per tank.

The ACT Government’s Attorney-General said "We need to transition to zero emissions vehicles as soon as we can with more than 60 per cent of emissions kin Canberra coming from vehicles.

There are plans for zero-emissions government fleet within three years."
The ACT government has a fleet on Hyundai Ioniq electric vehicles which has resulted in an "80 per cent reduction" in running costs when compared to internal combustion vehicles in the same fleet.
