The government have set an ambitious target that requires the UK to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. The use of the fuel will contribute to the greener future of London buses, who themselves have the aim to make all 9,200 buses across the capital producing zero emissions.
Through electrolysis, hydrogen can be produced using renewable energy and water. When consumed, the only output is pure water vapour. Ryse has a mission to totally decarbonise the UK’s bus fleet in the next decade.
The transport sector is the highest carbon emitter in the UK with radical reductions needed to reach net zero emissions by 2050. Hydrogen technology already exists, can be deployed at scale and is the quickest and easiest route to decarbonising
Toxic air is a public health emergency and is killing more people in Europe than tobacco smoking. Because hydrogen is more suited to heavier vehicles going longer distances, it can play a significant role in improving air quality in urban areas, delivering health benefits to more people, and more of society
If deployed at scale, studies show that the total ownership costs of hydrogen buses will be lower than electric buses in the early 2020s and can be lower than diesel buses by 2030.Hydrogen technology will lead to affordable zero emission vehicles
The hydrogen facility will see a considerable amount of inward investment into Herne Bay while developing a site that has become overgrown. The multi-million pound project will see Herne Bay and Canterbury at the forefront of the production of the fuel for the future bringing with it further opportunities.
Ryse is committed to using local contractors during the construction phase to ensure jobs for local people and allow local businesses to get involved. There will be jobs created after the construction phase which will also be recruited locally, where skills permit.
Canterbury City Council has a target to become carbon neutral by 2030. Ryse has recently been awarded a contract to supply hydrogen to 20 buses in London operated by TfL. These will be the world’s first hydrogen powered double decker buses and will be introduced on three London bus routes from Spring 2020
We are looking forward to expanding our supply contracts in the bus sector and will be working closely with the local council and private sector companies across Herne Bay, the district and beyond to totally decarbonise the UK's bus fleet in the next decade. We also intend to supply hydrogen to other modes of transport such as taxis, trains, trucks and to the shipping sector.
