The Aberdeen Hydrogen Bus Project are due to arrive in Aberdeen in 2014. Working with a range of partners. A hydrogen infrastructure will be built including a maintenance facility and re-fuelling station. The project aims to explore the economic and environmental benefits from hydrogen transport technology, improve air quality, test an innovative technology, contribute to Scotland's Green transport targets and use hydrogen energy storage to ease electrical grid constraints. This is part of the wider H2 Aberdeen strategy: A Hydrogen Economy developed by the Hydrogen Transport Economy project (HyTrEc).

HyTrEc is part-funded by the Interreg IVB North Sea Region Programme which aims to support the validation, promotion and adoption of innovative hydrogen technologies across the North Sea Region and enhance the region's economic competitiveness within the transport and associated energy sectors. The project will inform and shape the development of infrastructure, technology, skills and financial instruments to support the application of hydrogen based technologies.

HyTrEc is happy to support the Aberdeen Schools Hydrogen Challenge in its role in providing fun and learning for students on hydrogen. Education plays a key role in the hydrogen strategy.
