Renault Group and Plug Power JV Hyvia and H2 taxi pioneer Hype have announced a partnership to accelerate decarbonized hydrogen mobility as a critical mean to achieve energy transition and meet the challenges of climate change and public health.

The companies claim to share a common vision in this regard, with a goal to rapidly develop the relevant uses of decarbonized hydrogen mobility, while securing the volume increase that will enable lower costs.

Further, their partnership covers the entire ecosystem of hydrogen mobility, including the supply of decarbonized hydrogen, H2 refueling stations and development of hydrogen vehicles. 

"Supply of decarbonized hydrogen, hydrogen stations and vans, financing solution: we are accelerating the deployment of hydrogen mobility thanks to this strategic partnership with Hype, a major player in the H2 sector, zero-emission solutions and hydrogen taxis", said Nicolas Champetier, CEO of Hyvia. 

"Building on our complementarity and our pioneering commitments, together we are deploying hydrogen ecosystems enabling the decarbonization of intensive usages, for a necessary energy transition", he added. 


HYVIA, HYSETCO to accelerate development of Hydrogen mobility 

HYVIA and HYSETCO announced their mutual cooperation towards faster development of hydrogen mobility for light commercial vehicles.

Mathieu Gardies, Founder and Chief Executive Officer Hype, commented on the partnership, "We are very pleased with this partnership, which will enable us to continue to accelerate our deployment in the relevant uses of decarbonized hydrogen mobility".

"Hyvia symbolizes the right approach to responding effectively to the climate emergency. We see its electric vehicles, which combine the advantages of a reasonably sized rechargeable battery and a hydrogen system, as the most appropriate technological platform for a rational and pragmatic transition to zero-emission mobility", he added.

Gardies also commended Hyvia's financing solution that "meets the needs of its customers and accelerates and secures the deployment of H2 ecosystems."

On the specificity of the partnership, Hyvia's 1 MW electrolyzer at its Flins plant will supply Hype's Paris region refueling station network with decarbonized hydrogen. The company will also enable Hype to deploy two H2 refueling stations by the end of 2024, contributing to the growth of the H2 refueling stations network in the Paris region.

The first of these stations will go into service in the summer of 2024 at the Hype site in Buc, developed in partnership with B.E. Green, the French specialist in zero-emission buses and coaches, claims Hyvia.

With regard to H2 vehicles, Hype will use a new L2H2 architecture, high-capacity Renault Master H2-TECH van supplied by Hyvia. A minimum of 9 additional vehicles will be delivered during 2024 to Hyvia's customers around Hype stations. 


Hyvia sets up manufacturing plant in France for hydrogen mobility  

The Renault Group and Plug Power's joint-venture dedicated to hydrogen mobility – Hyvia – launched in June last year has inaugurated its first plant at Refactory, Renault Group's manufacturing site for the circular economy located in Flins, Ile-de-France.
