41% of Brits will pay more to use hydrogen bus or train: Over half of UK commuters are inclined to travel to work on a hydrogen-powered train or bus in order to lower their carbon footprint.
That’s according to one of the discoveries in a current survey by the US power technology company Cummins Inc, which says nearly 41% of Brits are willing to pay an additional £1 per day so they can lower the carbon footprint of their commute.
The survey of 6,000 respondents additionally shows that almost 52% of consumers would contemplate buying or renting a vehicle powered by hydrogen fuel if it was priced equivalently to a diesel car.
The data of the report also imply that nearly half of the British citizens think that low carbon technologies are imperative for the UK’s economic recovery due to Covid-19.
Amy Adams, Vice President of Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Technologies at Cummins, stated: “It is encouraging to see the citizens and governments across Europe are prioritising the climate and understand that investment in hydrogen technologies is a path to improve the environment and fuel economic recovery from the impact of Covid-19.”
