The Aggregated Hydrogen Freight Consortium (AHFC) is an industry led group which aims to solve the chicken-and-egg problem that hydrogen faces in the transport sector.

The AHFC brings together operators of the largest UK fleets of vans and trucks and predominant members of the hydrogen industry, including hydrogen producers, hydrogen station suppliers and vehicle manufacturers.

The project consists of 5 overarching tasks

a large freight fleet user group who are committed to exploring hydrogen options
on a standardised set of vehicle specifications which operators use in large volumes
with fuel cell vehicle manufactures to develop, deploy and support the vehicles
with hydrogen refuelling solution providers to develop workable business cases based on localised vehicle demand
with government and third parties to ensure that financial and operational barriers to deployment are removed.
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles have an electric drive train through which power is generated by a reaction of hydrogen gas and oxygen in the air. See below for a video of hydrogen fuel cell vehicle operation
Hydrogen fuel

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe and has been used for a variety of industrial applications for more than 100 years. Over the past decade it has been increasingly recognised as a fuel for the decarbonisation of transport, with hydrogen cars and buses deployed in London, Birmingham and Aberdeen.

Hydrogen can be produced from a number of low and zero carbon sources which can be visualised in the image below:
