A new steam-age of “clean” hydrogen-powered trains has been suggested for the forthcoming Wales and Borders services, a Plaid Cymru AM has said.
Simon Thomas made the call off the back of research he commissioned on the potential to developing hydrogen infrastructure for transport in Wales. Hydrogen-fuelled trains emit osteam and condensed water and are ideal for both urban and long-distance services.
A report by Guto Owen, a consultant on developing renewable energy and low-carbon technology projects, said the Welsh Government has a “track-record” in awareness of hydrogen for transport.
The Welsh Government said it supported hydrogen technology.
