Irish Minister test drives hydrogen-fuelled car

This was the first time a Government Minister from Ireland was behind the wheel of a hydrogen car, where the fuel source literally falls on our head as rain. The test drive was organised as a result of Minister Naughten’s launch of GenComm’s first White Paper on SmartH2, which took place at GenComm’s recent Open meeting at NUI Galway, where industry and policy-makers were gatheredto hear more about the renewable energy project. The hydrogen electric vehicle has a range of between 400- 500km and is already on the Toyota forecourts in California, Germany and the UK. The quietness of the vehicle and how easy it is to drive were all very obvious, but it is the ability to directly replace petrol and diesel cars that makes it the most attractive. The Irish Minister made a series of videos on social media to
mark the event.
