National Composites Centre and Arcola Energy Publish Report on UK Supply Chain Opportunities in Hydrogen Heavy Duty Vehicles

September 22 2021

The National Composites Centre (NCC) and Arcola Energy, the UK’s leading integrator of hydrogen fuel cell (HFC) traction, have published the key findings of a UK Hydrogen Supply Chain Survey, undertaken as part of an Automotive Transformation Fund (ATF) project aiming to build a strong supply chain to support the decarbonisation of heavy-duty vehicles.

The survey captures data from approximately 175 industrial actors, some with existing operations and others with latent capabilities in the fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) powertrain market. The findings suggest that key areas of opportunity and current supply chain strengths include hydrogen storage, high-power batteries and power electronics, machines and drives (PEMD), among others, with investment in R&D, vehicle deployment and infrastructure essential to progress.
