Hydrogen: the energy of the regions
HRS hydrogen refueling stations represent a concrete solution enabling a large-scale reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the achievement of carbon neutrality within regional authorities. Our stations play a key role in the development of low-carbon mobility across the regions.
Why choose hydrogen mobility for your regional authority?
By 2026, public sector stakeholders will need to have upgraded their fleets to include at least 37.4% "very low-emission" vehicles1, i.e. battery electric or hydrogen vehicles.1, c’est-à-dire électriques à batterie ou hydrogène.
Where range, refueling time and loading capacity requirements dictate, hydrogen is proving the most suitable mobility solution.
At a regional level, the use of hydrogen must be linked to local dispensing infrastructure. HRS will support you in developing an ecosystem through a turnkey dispensing system similar to that used for gas stations. A great way to bring together and mobilise both public and private stakeholders.
Regional authorities can therefore deploy the use of hydrogen in a wide range of transport applications suitable for their particular authority: buses, waste collection trucks, tractors, heavy goods vehicles, refrigerated trailers, cargo bikes, commercial vehicles; rail mobility: regional or inter-regional trains travelling on non-electrified lines; sea and river mobility: boats, shuttles and pushers, etc.
Combined use by public and private stakeholders for mobility
Regional authorities, in association with economic stakeholders, are gradually creating regional networks with public hydrogen dispensing stations for varied use by regional authorities, businesses, the public, etc.
HRS has a presence across the French regions:
A fleet of hydrogen vehicles for public services
Waste collection trucks, buses, commercial vehicles… will prove effective in hydrogen versions. These vehicles offer comfortable operation on journeys exceeding 100 km and double collections with reduced interval times.
Installing a hydrogen refueling station in your municipality will enable you to refuel your vehicle fleet in one of two ways:
- rapidly through operation similar to that of a service station (15 minutes for a 30 kg bus tank, for example)
- slow refueling of several vehicles simultaneously on site.
Do you represent a regional authority with a hydrogen mobility project?

Advantages of hydrogen for collective mobility
Reduced environmental footprint
Hydrogen vehicles produce electricity by combining H2 and O2, and emit only water vapour. No CO2 is emitted during this process.
Reliability and safety
Our stations are manufactured on an industrial scale. Our dispensers comply with fueling protocol SAE J2601/ISO 19880-1 T30 and are confirmed by the CEP (Clean Energy Partnership)
No need to change old habits!
To refuel, simply connect the pump to your vehicle. The refueling time is the same as that for combustion engine vehicles.
An ecosystem to accelerate the transition
Installing a station within a region provides access to a refueling station for widespread use and helps drive the transition to low-carbon mobility.
Drive several hundred kilometres with full autonomy to ensure your continuity of service. The range of H2 vehicles is identical to that of combustion engine vehicles.
Reducing noise pollution
Hydrogen powered vehicles are very quiet for significantly lower noise pollution from your activities.
Hydrogen refueling reduces vehicle standstill times. The fueling protocol enables fast refueling of heavy-duty vehicles: ~15 minutes for a 30 kg tank.
