  2. 2. Hydrogen – A statement from our CEO Hydrogen at Linde’s Annual General Meeting 2012 Speech by Professor Dr Reitzle (3 May 2012) “And now a brief word on the subject of hydrogen. The potential of hydrogen extends beyond environmentally friendly transport. In a society increasingly committed to energy from renewable sources, the importance of hydrogen as a means of energy storage is also set to grow. Hydrogen is the only fuel which can store large quantities of energy from renewable sources such as wind power for a long period of time.” Hydrogen at Linde’s First Technology Summit Speech by Professor Dr Reitzle (17 September 2012) “The future of mobility is green – we offer Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) and hydrogen (H2) as low or zero emission fuel for all kind of mobility needs. Hydrogen, in conjunction with fuel cells, has the potential to make both private and public transport more environmentally sound.” Hydrogen at the stars symposium Speech by Professor Dr Reitzle (24 September 2012) “Ladies and gentlemen, imagine a journey around the globe, covering a distance of 30,000 kilometres, across 4 continents and through 14 Page 2 countries. And now, imagine making this trip in a fuel-cell car. To achieve this impressive feat, we teamed up with Daimler last year for
  3. 3. W hydrogen for transport? hy • UK Government has stretching GHG reduction targets • Transport accounts roughly for one fifth all GHG emissions • Hydrogen is one of the most abundant elements in the universe • Hydrogen can be produced from a number of different sources • Hydrogen produces only water as a by–product when used in conjunction with a fuel cell • Hydrogen offers a genuine pathway to being a zero carbon transport fuel • Hydrogen removes “range anxiety” of BEV’s Page 3
  4. 4. UK GHG emissions summary c549 Million Tonnes of GHG emitted across all sectors c21%/ c115 Million Tonnes emitted from Transport sector alone >90% solely from Road Transport % of UK GHG emissions by sector in 2011 Source: UK Department UK GHG emissions by mode of transport in 2011 Source: % of for Statistics

  6. 6. Complex infrastructures are not uncommon Harness renewables and move production to point of use for 100% carbon free hydrogen Page 6
  7. 7. Clear focus on the early commercialmarkets Page 7
  8. 8. A first for the UKHonda, Swindon• The UK’s first-ever public access hydrogen refuelling station• 200kg per day capacity• Combined 350b and 700b dispensing capability• Joint collaboration between BOC, Honda and Forward Swindon• Site to be expanded in 2013 to produce 350/700b hydrogen refuelling station hydrogen from solar powered electrolysis for FLT’s and H2 ICEs Mercedes B-Class Hyundai ix35 London black taxis Page 8 H2 Moves
  9. 9. A template for “green” mass transit applicationsOn-shore wind 1MW Hydrogenics Storage and delivery Linde IC50 Hydrogen farm Electrolyser by tube trailer Refuelling Station• The UK’s first and largest demonstration of hydrogen production from wind linked to a bus refuelling station and its use as an energy store• Key elements of project: – 1 x 1MW electrolyser – 1 x Linde IC50 Hydrogen Refuelling Station with 2 fast flow dispensers – 10 x Van Hool hydrogen fuel cell buses – Commissioning date Q4 2013 – Initial project period of 4 years – Part funding already secured from Fuel Cells & Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), Technology Strategy Board (TSB), Low Carbon Network Fund (LCNF) and the Scottish Government Page 9
