Wales, Feb 15, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Conservation of non-renewable source of energy and saving the environment has become one of the greatest concerns for all countries. As per the reports, the government of United Kingdom has made a significant effort to boost the use of alternative fuel. Peter Hain, Welsh Secretary recently said that they have planned to introduce hydrogen route in South Wales.
According to the reports, M4 route of South Wales will start to operate as “hydrogen highway” for encouraging the news of alternating fuel. As introducing a “hydrogen highway” is not all, fuel is necessary for promoting the use of alternate fuel. The authorities have taken care of these facts and have planned to locate refueling stations in different points of the highway so that people do not have to face any inconvenience for filling their cars with alternative fuel.
It has been reported that the aim behind this effort is to increase the use of electric and hydrogen powered vehicles. Reports also indicate that the introduction of the “hydrogen highway” is also an important step to develop the renewable fuel infrastructure of the country.
Peter Hain, after announcing their decision to open “hydrogen highway” said that the less number of replenishing stations has been one of the major obstacles in the development of renewable fuel. To overcome the obstacles, their future aim would be to establish a link between replenishing points with London and Swindon. It has also been reported that the authorities are also considering for an extension till Midlands. Reports indicate that by 2015, the highway is expected to have complete infrastructure for running environment friendly cars.
