With the largest fleet of hydrogen buses in Europe and the UK’s first integrated hydrogen generation and bus refuelling station, Aberdeen is at the forefront of several exciting hydrogen projects. As part of a drive to showcase these projects, to network and to further explore hydrogen opportunities in the north-east, the city welcomed around 700 delegates to the inaugural Aberdeen Hydrogen Festival. The festival attracted international delegations across Europe and the US. It was a great success, with all participants speaking highly of Aberdeen and its status as a hydrogen leader. To mark the start of the festival, the world’s first hydrogen-powered vessel paid a visit to Aberdeen Harbour. The Energy Observer is a converted race boat and the first of its kind to convert seawater for use as hydrogen fuel. The vessel is set to visit a further 50 countries on its mission to promote sustainable transport and the reduction of carbon emissions.
