Hydrogen or H2 is an invisible, odourless and non-toxic gas that is lighter than air and easily forms compounds, which means it easily reacts with other molecules. The most commonly known compound is with oxygen: H2O, which is water. H2 is a powerful energy carrier that can be used in fuel cells to generate electricity to power vehicles, or heating systems. Driving on hydrogen is clean: no harmful substances such as pollutants and greenhouse gases are emitted from the vehicle exhaust.
To support the mining sector, and other hard-to-decarbonize industries, ensuring a low-carbon, clean hydrogen supply is essential. The uptake of hydrogen for mobility, and in particular green hydrogen produced from renewable electricity, is therefore expected to increase in the coming years. On the vehicle side, the market focus has broadened from passenger cars and light commercial vehicles to heavy commercial vehicles such as mining trucks, and shipping vessels.
TotalEnergies's network currently counts close to 30 hydrogen refuelling stations (HRS) across Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and France, and is developing numerous new HRS projects to prepare the market for broader hydrogen adoption.
