Center Parcs joins ITM trial

ENERGY storage and clean fuel company ITM Power has revealed that holiday park operator Center Parcs has agreed to trial its high pressure refueling unit.

ITM Power is piloting small scale localised hydrogen distribution as way of overcoming barriers to using hydrogen as a vehicle fuel.

Graham Cooley, ITM Power chief executive, said: “Center Parcs provides a perfect demonstration of return to base commercial fleet refuelling.

“We are delighted that an organisation like Center Parcs with such a strong commitment to environmental protection and air quality has joined HOST. Center Parcs are pioneering the leisure industry’s early adoption of clean technology.”

Center Parcs, which operates four 400 acre holiday villages in the UK, has agreed to join the trial as part of its wider project to research alternative energy sources.

Chris Brooks, sustainability manager at Center Parcs, said: “Center Parcs is committed to seeking new ways of minimising its environmental impact.

“We are excited about being involved in this trial and the HOST scheme is just one of many initiatives we are considering as part of our ongoing sustainability strategy.”
