Expected EIHP Results


Main Results expected from EIHP2 are:

  • Development of a world-wide harmonised regulation for hydrogen fuelled road ve-hicles
  • Development of procedures for periodic vehicle inspections (roadworthiness).
  • As far as possible development of a world-wide standard or regulation and of peri-odic inspection procedures for the relevant refuelling infrastructure, subsystems or components.

These draft regulations and standards will enable vehicle and infrastructure industry to save enormous resources in bringing hydrogen fuelled fuel cell vehicles onto the road. Many coun-tries will for the first time have the legal basis to approve the operation of hydrogen fuelled vehicles on public roads and refilling at public refuelling stations. In addition, the access of European vehicle and infrastructure component manufacturers to the EU market as well as the North American market will be facilitated in the medium and long term.
