Enabling Pioneering Technology
Though a handful of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are already being trialled in the UK, the University of Birmingham is believed to be the first in the country to employ the technology as part of its day to day fleet operations, bolstering its reputation as a pioneer in the field of hydrogen fuel cell research.
The development of alternative technology to traditionally-fuelled petrol and diesel vehicles is a key issue in the motor industry with the Department for Transport recently launching a £2m fund to encourage more businesses to switch. The delivery marks a momentous step for both Lex Autolease and their long standing supplier Hyundai.
Birmingham and The Midlands has long been synonymous with motor innovation and forward-thinking. This new partnership between two of the region’s biggest employers illustrates this perfectly.
