With regards to the new venture in Australia, the hydrogen commercial vehicles manufacturer is quoted as saying: “Green hydrogen investment plans for Australia are a lot more viable supplying into the local heavy vehicle market, as diesel displacement is a much higher value use for hydrogen than bulk export.
