VRA gets hydrogen insight

Leading experts in the hydrogen car market will be speaking at 2018’s first meeting of the Vehicle Remarketing Association.

Being held at the Swindon offices of fleet management specialists Arval, the meeting will take a look at developments in hydrogen technology, availability of cars and likely sales. The town is the centre of the UK’s largest hydrogen trial for vehicles, business and homes.

Key speakers include Clare Jackson of Ecuity Consulting on the Swindon Hydrogen Hub; Paul Marchment of Arval on the company’s hydrogen fleet car trial; and John Hunt of Toyota on motor manufacturer progress in developing hydrogen cars. Jayson Whittington of Glass’s will also be providing a general update on the overall new and used car sector.

Glenn Sturley, chair at the VRA, said, ‘There is a lot of curiosity in the remarketing sector about hydrogen vehicles. They certainly do appear to promise a highly attractive alternative to the fuel types currently available in the medium-longer term.’
