South Wales, Feb 15 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The UK government is going green. They are promoting the usage of alternative fuels, in their apparent bid to safeguard the environment. The Welsh Secretary recently announced that they are going to introduce a hydrogen highway in South Wales. Environment Minister Jane Davidson and the Welsh Secretary Peter Hain revealed that they want that the hydrogen, which will be used to supply the highway with gas, be produced from renewable energy sources.
Reportedly the M4 route of South Wales is all set to make its debut as the ‘hydrogen highway’, so as to encourage the usage of alternative fuels. The UK government has planned the whole operation very carefully, and also intend to operate the refueling stations on different locations on the M4 highway. So that the travelers don’t have any difficulties in case they run out of fuel, while traveling on the Hydrogen Highway. Reports say that in around 4 years time, the Hydrogen Highway will have the complete infrastructure for running environment friendly cars.
The basic goal behind making the Hydrogen Highway is to promote the usage of hydrogen powered vehicles, and the electric powered vehicles too. The government is also thinking about developing the renewable fuel infrastructure of the country. Even though the plan is ambitious, yet there is no time schedule as yet.
