HYVIA, a joint venture between Renault Group and Plug specializing in Hydrogen mobility, and HYPE, an independent leader in zero-emission mobility and a pioneer in Hydrogen taxis, have announced a partnership to accelerate decarbonized Hydrogen mobility. This collaboration is supported by a shared vision, recognizing decarbonized Hydrogen mobility as a crucial solution for a successful energy transition and addressing climate change and public health challenges, and a common goal to swiftly expand the practical applications of decarbonized Hydrogen mobility while increasing volume to reduce costs.

The partnership leverages the complementary strengths of both partners, HYVIA, that offers a unique and comprehensive ecosystem and financing solutions to deploy decarbonized Hydrogen mobility projects and HYPE, which utilizes its integrated zero-emission platform, which includes a fleet and booking application for zero-emission taxis, green Hydrogen distribution stations, and its Last Mile program.

In a comprehensive partnership for hydrogen mobility, HYVIA will produce clean hydrogen fuel using their 1 MW electrolyzer at its Flins plant and supply it to HYPE's refueling stations in Paris, powering the adoption of hydrogen vehicles in the Paris region. The partnership also involves:

• Hydrogen refueling stations HYVIA will enable HYPE to establish two H2 refueling stations by the end of 2024. This includes a HYWELL station, co-developed with Atawey and supported by the Maurin group, at the RENAULT Corbeil-Essonnes dealership. The first station will commence operations in summer 2024 at the HYPE site in Buc, developed in collaboration with B.E. Green, a French specialist in zero-emission buses and coaches.

Hydrogen vans: HYPE will utilize a new L2H2 architecture, high-capacity Renault Master H2-TECH van provided by HYVIA for intensive operations. At least nine additional vehicles will be delivered in 2024 to HYVIA’s customers around HYPE stations. These H2 vans will be financed by HYVIA and included in HYPE's Last Mile program, supported by the Ile-de-France Region, ADEME, and the European Connecting Europe Facility, to receive subsidies for Hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles.

Nicolas Champetier, the CEO of HYVIA stated that “Supply of decarbonized Hydrogen, Hydrogen stations and vans, financing solution: we are accelerating the deployment of Hydrogen mobility thanks to this strategic partnership with HYPE, a major player in the H2 sector, zero-emission solutions and Hydrogen taxis. Building on our complementarity and our pioneering commitments, together we are deploying Hydrogen ecosystems enabling the decarbonization of intensive usages, for a necessary energy transition.”
