Identification

Hype fights against air pollution in urban areas by offering a zero-emission solution for passenger transportation, based on hydrogen. Hype develops and operates the first hydrogen mobility platform integrating simultaneously production, distribution and uses – with the taxi as first market. Hype operates the world's largest fleet of hydrogen- powered taxis and deploys solutions that will enable all taxis and all other mobility players to switch to zero-emission through hydrogen.

Implementation Stories

Green Hydrogen Mobility by HYPE
Implemented by HYPE in Paris (France) in 2015

Hype launched in Paris during COP 21 with 5 hydrogen- powered taxis fuelled by the first hydrogen station, located at Place de l’Alma. In July 2022, there were 200+ hydrogen-powered taxis in circulation across the city. Their aim is to reach a fleet of 700 vehicles and 7 distribution stations with locally produced fuel by the beginning of 2023, and 10,000 zero-emissions taxis with 26 public refueling stations for the Paris Olympic Games in 2024.

Result

200+ vehicles carried 1.6 m people over 10.5 m km, avoiding 5.2 t of nox

The environmental benefits

  • Since 2015, more than 10 million zero-tailpipe-emission kilometers have been traveled by the Hype fleet, which has avoided the emission of more than 5 tons of NOx
  • A hydrogen taxi uses 1.2 kg of hydrogen for 100km
  • 0 emission at tailpipe: 0 NOx, 0 particulate matter, 0 SO2, 0 CO2
  • More than 65% reduction of CO2 emissions (well-to-wheel)
04.

The Financial benefits

  • 0 extra cost for the driver and for the final customer NOW, and with no emissions, no noise and no vibrations!
  • Hype's objective is to quickly reach €7/kg of hydrogen sold at the pump, in order to allow fossil fuel cost parity and accelerate the development of all potential H2 mobility users
