First Hydrogen and Cambridge University to collaborate on alternative fuels

First Hydrogen van

First Hydrogen has signed a five-year partnership with the University of Cambridge to research hydrogen production and mobility.

The designer and manufacturer of hydrogen-powered vans said the collaboration will enable the joint development of hydrogen related technologies.

This will have a particular focus on the automotive industry, hydrogen production and hydrogen fuel distribution industries.

The first project of the partnership will develop an AI software tool to harvest user and supplier information related to hydrogen usage, which will better inform hydrogen business cases.

The tool is expected to become an additional revenue generating service that First Hydrogen offers and will also help the company develop its own technology and infrastructure investments in the hydrogen sector.

The partnership will be led by Professor Seamus Higson of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, a world leading institution in energy transition and the department that first developed the hydrogen fuel cell, which was subsequently used in the Apollo moon missions. 

Professor Higson said: “We see huge growth in the conversion of the automotive industry to full scale adoption of hydrogen as a primary fuel source.

“This collaboration between the University of Cambridge and First Hydrogen also contributes to the United Kingdom leading the way to decarbonisation and reaching our ambitious net zero targets.”
