  • Aberdeen City Council has a strong focus on developing a sustainable transport network. Before any action is taken on the ground it is necessary to have a robust plan in place. Along side the Local Transport Strategy, the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan has been developed. This SUMP was recognised at European level as being an example of best practice, receiving an award as part of the EU “Do the right mix” campaign to promote Sustainable urban Mobility.
    With a strategic vision in place, the City has developed a number of projects, engaging the public and private sectors to see on the ground delivery of sustainable transport initiatives.
    One of these projects in the Aberdeen Hydrogen Project
  • The Aberdeen Hydrogen Bus Project consists of two European Funded project - High V Lo City and Hytransit. In total this has secured €10 million EU funding which allows Aberdeen to invest in hydrogen infrastructure and buses. The buses will be operated by First Bus and Stagecoach.
    There have been a number of other hydrogen bus projects (London, Amsterdam and Cologne) in Europe and this will the first hydrogen bus deployment in Scotland. When completed the Aberdeen Hydrogen Bus project will have the largest hydrogen bus fleet in Europe.
    The project will also provide the largest refuelling station of its type in the UK in the centre of Aberdeen
    An integrated maintenance facility for hydrogen vehicles within a working Council depot
    Demonstrate FCEV buses on commercial routes within Aberdeen City in comparison to conventional and diesel hybrid vehicles.
    The main source of EU Funding came from the Fuel Cell Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU)
  • The FCH JU have provided significant grant funding to enable delivery of the Aberdeen Hydrogen bus project. They recognise the commitment and ability of Aberdeen to deliver.
    Aberdeen – Oil and Gas industry puts City in a great position for renewables and Hydrogen in particular. Transferable engineering skills, strong public/private joint working, excellent record of delivering
    - 29 of Scotland’s top 100 businesses are located in Aberdeen. An unemployment rate of just 2.3%, significantly lower than UK and Scottish averages.
    City Council – 2007-13 Transnational Projects
    Total costs of €304m, €52m of grants to the City Council. Council has invested, but all other partners from various sectors are also investing
  • There are a range of public and private sector partners involved to realise the bus project – Aberdeen is delighted to have such experts and market leaders in their field involved in the project, partners include:
    Aberdeen City Council – it has been shown that local authorities are instrumental in enabling demonstration projects and that they play a valuable role in contributing to the future realisation of new technologies
    BOC – part of the global Linde group – providing the hydrogen supply and the re-fuelling station
    Scottish & Southern Energy – looking at the grid balancing element of the project with partner
    Scottish Gas Networks
    Van Hool – manufacturers of the hydrogen buses, based in Belgium
    FirstGroup – one of the bus operators – who will operate 4 of the 10 buses
    Stagecoach – the additional bus operator – who will operate the remaining 6 buses
  • From the point of view of energy security – the idea of producing energy generated from renewables and maximising their capacity by being able to store it for use whenever it’s needed
    Sustainable economic growth – business development and diversification into the industry
    Reducing carbon – zero emissions depending on production method
    Aberdeen City Region is known across the world as an energy knowledge and know-how centre.
    • Hydrogen is publicly accepted as a clean, locally produced, renewable fuel and is in use in transport, heat and power applications.
    • The region’s renewable energy capacity is being maximised with enough renewable hydrogen being produced to supply the region and a surplus being distributed further afield.
    • The region’s workforce is applying their transferable oil and gas skills in the hydrogen economy, which is also attracting new faces to this fast-growing industry from the local area and beyond.
    • Aberdeen no longer has three Air Quality Management Areas; hydrogen’s zero emissions applications, along with associated measures have helped reduce pollution levels and enabled compliance with national air quality objectives.
    • The region has reduced emissions by 42% in line with the Climate Change Act.
  • Hydrogen as a energy/ fuel source is not a new technology but has seen real changes in its use over the last 10 years in response to the need to reduce carbon emissions and the increase in renewable energy
    Ever increasing development of hydrogen and fuel cell uses within the transport sector with markets are developing in Germany, Japan, Korea and the US.
    Large car manufacturers such as Hyundai, Toyota and Honda are moving in to commercial production on Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles
    Lead to challenges associated with hydrogen production storage and refuelling infrastructure.
  • This is supported by the Mckinsey Report presented by the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking, a EU commission body responsible for the development and support of the industry and policy in the EU.
    Report demonstrates that the commercialisation of vehicles such as car, buses and light vehicles are expected to occur in the next 3-5 years.
    This raises issues and constraints on the hydrogen infrastructure to support this development.
    In particular the development of refuelling infrastructure, links to renewable energy and hydrogen production as well the potential use of hydrogen as a by product from industrial processes.
  • The Aberdeen Hydrogen Bus project aims to address the technical challenges to integrate hydrogen and fuel into low carbon transport solutions with Aberdeen and Scotland.
    Test the ability of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles to support battery electric vehicles as a technology to reduce carbon emissions for the transport sector
    The bus project aims to create demand for hydrogen ~ 160 -200kg/day which can allow other technologies and solutions to be tested such as balancing supply and demand of wind energy.
  • The Aberdeen Hydrogen Bus Project consists of two European Funded project - High V Lo City and Hytransit. In total this has secured €10 million EU funding which allows Aberdeen to invest in hydrogen infrastructure and buses. The buses will be operated by First Bus and Stagecoach.
    There have been a number of other hydrogen bus projects (London, Amsterdam and Cologne) in Europe and this will the first hydrogen bus deployment in Scotland. When completed the Aberdeen Hydrogen Bus project will have the largest hydrogen bus fleet in Europe.
    The project will also provide the largest refuelling station of its type in the UK in the centre of Aberdeen
    An integrated maintenance facility for hydrogen vehicles within a working Council depot
    Demonstrate FCEV buses on commercial routes within Aberdeen City in comparison to conventional and diesel hybrid vehicles.
  • There are a range of public and private sector partners involved to realise the bus project – Aberdeen is delighted to have such experts and market leaders in their field involved in the project, partners include:
    Aberdeen City Council – it has been shown that local authorities are instrumental in enabling demonstration projects and that they play a valuable role in contributing to the future realisation of new technologies

    Van Hool – manufacturers of the hydrogen buses, based in Belgium
    FirstGroup – one of the bus operators – who will operate 4 of the 10 buses
    Stagecoach – the additional bus operator – who will operate the remaining 6 buses
  • The buses that are going to be used fare 4th generation Van Hool bus. The bus has the same performance characteristics as a diesel vehicle.
    Class 1 city bus – EU certified
    Bus is essentially a hybrid electric vehicle that runs on a Siemens drive system
    Hydrogen is stored on the bus using hydrogen tanks on the roof
    Hydrogen into electricity through 150kw fuel cell
    The bus has a range of 220 – 260 mile per day
    Zero Emissions
  • The refuelling station will provided by BOC Linde Group and will be situated in the centre of the city at Aberdeen city Council’s Kittybrewster depot.
    Hydrogen will be generated onsite by 3 electrolysers which are capable of producing 400kg of hydrogen a day. The station is capable of dispensing 300kg a day and has an onsite storage of 42okg.
    Meet the demands of the buses which will be between 20 -30kg of hydrogen per bus.
    The station has been specified so that it can refuel a bus in 10 minutes and is expected to refuel all ten buses each day within a four hour window.
  • Showing the concept we have for the possibilities of hydrogen production, storage and use.
    Strategic Hydrogen Framework for Aberdeen which is focusing on the future use of hydrogen economy in the Aberdeen City Region
    Focusing on:
    Developing hydrogen Infrastructure
    Production of renewable hydrogen
    Seek partnerships with the Seven Cities Alliance and Transport Scotland for large demonstration projects in line with FCHJU priorities.
    Local supply chain development
    Promotion and development to support hydrogen and fuel cell technology in transport and energy policy
    Aberdeen – centre of excellence for hydrogen technologies and demonstration projects.
  • The Hydrogen bus Projects are not standalone initiatives, but they form part of a larger Strategic vision for the area which has been developed through transnsational cooperation.
    The Hydrogen Transport Economy (HyTrEc) project aims to improve access to and advance the adoption of hydrogen as an alternative energy vector across the North Sea Region. The project will identify and address structural impediments constraining development of, access to and adoption of this alternative fuel in urban and rural settings.
    The project will establish a transnational network which will improve accessibility to hydrogen across the North Sea Region as an alternative energy vector by:
    Establishing a North Sea Hydrogen Transport Stakeholder Group, and developing strategies and initiatives to create a fully functioning hydrogen corridor
    A transnational pilot study to improve the accessibility and connectivity of existing regional hydrogen corridors and supporting the development of hydrogen supply chain infrastructure
    Piloting a novel, portable hydrogen refuelling station demonstrator
    Developing a North Sea Region education forum to identify skills gaps and develop training solutions
    Facilitating access to public and private sector financial instruments which support the development of hydrogen technology
    Supporting the development of SME clusters to deliver hydrogen infrastructure solutions

  • As such we have played an active role in the development of the next ESI fund programme for Scotland.
    As many of you will know the next round of ESI funds will be very different -This is a new approach to delivery of the regional managed programmes (ERDF, ESF, EAFRD & MAFF) for 2014-2020, requiring greater integration and complementarity between them under one PA which will be the overarching framework for how the funds are used.
    As with the ETC funds the commission has been very clear that it expects fewer more focussed range of activities this time round, achieving a step change in terms of sustainable outcomes. Choice from the 11 of thematic objectives with requirement to focus majority of resources in ERDF programme on research and innovation, support for SMEs, and low carbon activity, to allocate a minimum of the Structural Funds allocation to ESF activities - Greater emphasis on the use of Financial Instruments/revolving funds.
    SG started working with partners at the end of 2011 to develop this approach and consulted in the summer on the proposed architecture of the programme and Governance arrangements including the use of Strategic Delivery Partnerships to develop proposals for strategic interventions under three Themed Funds which would form the basis for the Scottish Operational Programmes.
    There has been a lot of intensive work over the summer by the three Shadow Delivery Partnerships (one for each themed fund)to propose projects or strategic interventions and the outcomes they will need to deliver to contribute to E 2020 objectives. SDPs are made up of those organisations traditionally involved in the delivery of Structural Funds programmes, most likely to be main match funders and their delivery partners along with SG policy teams.
    These proposals are currently being refined and reviewed by Scottish Government to shape the final Partnership Agreement and draft Operational Programmes, final decisions require to be taken on how much of each fund will be allocated to each fund Theme and the individual strategic interventions - Overall funds lower – ERDF £400m ESF £400m, plus a further £50m ESF Youth Employment Initiative to be spent in the West of Scotland, with £172m of these funds ringfenced for Highland and islands in recognition of their transition status – SRDP c. £1.2m but much ringfenced for agriculture and forestry schemes.
    Hopefully you will be aware of the current consultation document which closes on 24th of this month, which gives more detail and the opportunity for you to provide further input to the process.
  • Management and delivery quite different for the new period – for ERDF and ESF and elements of SRDP (innovation, F&D, rural business support) proposed delivery of an agreed range of activities via Lead Partners with limited or no open challenge fund
    These Lead partners will need to to take responsibility for each intervention and work with delivery partners for specific activities. At this stage, cannot be certain what specific interventions will be included but Likely that these are the Investment Priorities which will be included in the Partnership Agreement chapter for Scotland, with a focus on activities which contribute to Scotland’s Smart Specialisation approach and regional growth assets.
    R&TD&I – in particular focusing on commercialisation and collaboration between business and academia. Linked to sectors picked out as part of Smart Specialisation, and in support of identified regional strengths.
     ICT – only in relation to remote broadband roll-out (other aspects covered under SME competitiveness, skills, and labour market mobility
     SME Competitiveness – in particular identifying the next generation of potential growth companies with international aspirations, helping business exploit digital technology, innovation and developing leadership capacity; and making Scotland’s cities more investment-attractive and competitive
     Low Carbon Economy – a clear focus in getting a wide range of projects investment-ready (renewable heat, CHP, hydrogen fuel, renewable/marine energy…); and a focus on promoting a behavioural shift towards low-carbon transport options.
     Protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency – in particular in relation to business waste and efficiency, and promoting and up-scaling circular economies.
     Labour market mobility – a localised approach to addressing barriers to work, e.g. older workers, childcare, health inequalities, skills and employability. This should link closely to SME development to ensure that jobs are created alongside preparing people to take up sustainable employment.
     Social inclusion and combating poverty – intensive and targeted support at areas of multiple and complex need aimed at financial inclusion, household/family wellbeing and resilience and basic life skills (including digital literacy).
     Education, skills and lifelong learning – to complement Labour Market Mobility, aimed at increasing skills levels (vocational, academic and business-ready) linked to Smart Specialisation or regionally significant sectors – matching skills supply and demand – and extending and improving vocational education pathways
    Also remembering the LEADER programme will conti9nue to support rural community led activity.
  • As such we have played an active role in the development of the next ESI fund programme for Scotland.
    As many of you will know the next round of ESI funds will be very different -This is a new approach to delivery of the regional managed programmes (ERDF, ESF, EAFRD & MAFF) for 2014-2020, requiring greater integration and complementarity between them under one PA which will be the overarching framework for how the funds are used.

    63. 63. EUROPEAN TERRITORIAL COOPERATION (INTERREG) PROGRAMMES 2014-2020 Opportunities for Sustainable Transport Aberdeen, 26 February 2014
    64. 64. Focus of INTERREG Programmes • • • • • • • • • Regions across an area share similar opportunities - and similar obstacles to development Stimulate cooperation between Member States Strengthen economic and social cohesion of regions Seek to mitigate the effects of national borders Policy level knowledge exchange and learning programmes Some capacity for pilot actions and capitalisation Opportunity for mainstreaming experience and good practice Long lasting and tangible effects of projects Projects often experiment in ways that lead to more substantial projects supported by mainstream or specialist EU Funds
    65. 65. Features of INTERREG Programmes • • • • • • • Challenge fund process Geographically targeted – cross-border, transnational, inter-regional Projects normally require 3 or more partners from different countries Promoting the ‘quadruple helix’ model for stakeholder engagement Grant intervention rates vary across programmes Limited opportunity for capital spend Greater thematic concentration and focus on specific investment priorities • Support for EU Growth & Jobs goal • Better synergies with other EU funding / financial instruments • Increased efforts for mainstreaming activities at the national level
    66. 66. Status of INTERREG Programmes • • • Operational Programmes still in development Earliest call date for applications Autumn 2014 Thematic priorities common across programmes: – – – – • Strengthening research, development and innovation Enhancing SME competitiveness Supporting the low carbon economy Environmental protection and resource efficiency Themes specific to particular programmes : – Sustainable transport – Social inclusion – Climate change and risk prevention
    67. 67. INTERREG and Sustainable Transport • • • • • • • • North Sea and North West Europe - proposing specific investment priorities for ST Don’t dismiss other programmes – ST opportunities will exist under less specific priorities, e.g. Low Carbon, R&D&I, Social Inclusion Consider joint policy efforts – esp. with energy and ICT/informatics Think beyond Team Scotland – look for European partners early Geographical restrictions are challenging – remember, eligibility is based on where outcomes and impact will happen Explore the connections to other EU funding streams Give consideration to economic, environmental and social benefits Opportunities for shared learning with others beyond the project
    68. 68. Next Stages • • • • Operational Programmes to the Commission by Summer 2014 Launch of programmes late 2014-early 2015 Future joint information events on INTERREG nearer launch Focus on the project aim and objectives first – then determine which EU funding stream(s) are best suited • Track the progress of those with the best spatial and thematic concentration fit for your project • Establish relationships with (lead) partners as early as possible • Opportunities will exist up to 2020
