World’s first hydrogen-powered train begins passenger service

Germany is aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 65% by 2030 from 1990 levels.

Thus, the country can achieve carbon neutrality by 2045, which is 5 years earlier than originally planned.

Alstom said the zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell-powered vessels have a maximum travel distance of 1,000km, allowing them to “run all day with just one hydrogen tank.”

Nearly four years after the start of trial operation, on 24/8, the world’s first hydrogen-powered passenger train network officially entered service in the German state of Lower Saxony.
