The project brings together 31 partners from industry, Government, academic and consulting organisations. Some of the worlds' leading automotive and technology development companies, major energy companies, policy developers and transport operators are collaborating to lead Europe into the development of the Twenty second Century hydrogen-based transport system of the future.
HyFLEET:CUTE has been established under and is financially supported by the European Commission's 6th Framework Research Programme . The European Union's Energy Policy aims at diversifying and security energy sources while reducing CO2 (Carbon Di Oxide - a gas that contributes to the world's Climate Change) and other emissions harmful to the environment and human health. Hydrogen is a key element in this future strategy for road transport.
