Tyseley Refuelling Hub
Tyseley Energy Park is home to the UK’s first multi fuel, open access, low and zero carbon fuel refuelling station and is open for business.
The refuelling station at TEP is the result of a 5 year collaboration between the private and public sector and see TEP able to refuel Hydrogen, Compressed Natural Gas, Biodiesel and electrical vehicles both commercial and private.
The refuelling station is commissioned and ready to receive commercial fleet, public transport fleet and private vehicles. The unmanned facility is available 24/7 for refuelling with integrated pay at pump options that accept credit, debit and fuel card payments.
Hydrogen is produced on site using a 3MW ITM Power Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyser, which splits water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen generated is very high purity, meeting all requirements for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs). The hydrogen is dispensed at 700bar and 350bar ensuring a very quick and efficient refuel that can provide a 300-350 mile range.
When hydrogen is used in a fuel cell, it returns back to water vapour, meaning hydrogen as a fuel is a very clean fuel option.
Biomethane or Bio-Compressed Natural Gas from CNG Fuels
Bio-CNG can be used by HGVs & Vans as a low-emission and low-cost alternative to diesel. It helps reduce harmful particulate emissions from engines and the CNG vehicles themselves also run approx. 50% quieter than a comparable diesel vehicle.
The CNG refuelling station operates by connecting to the national gas pipeline, compressing the gas by using on-site compressors and then dispensing it into HGV’s & Vans. By displacing diesel with Bio-CNG an 84% reduction in CO2 eq. emissions compared with a diesel truck.
The refuelling experience is incredibly user friendly with an automatic fill once refuelling nozzle connected to the vehicle.

The Certas Energy state-of-the-art bunker provides a convenient place for HGV operators to refuel on diesel, gas oil and Adblue via eight high-speed pumps.
The facility will be the second refuelling bunker in the country to dispense Shell GTL Fuel, offering a cleaner burning, drop-in alternative to diesel for on-road and off-road applications. The use of Shell GTL Fuel immediately lowers emissions of harmful pollutants such as nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM). The fuel also delivers additional performance benefits for vehicles operating in built-up urban areas, such a reducing fuel odours and engine noise levels. Shell GTL Fuel will also power the site’s truck wash facility for large vehicles.

Improved vehicle design and battery performance and falling prices is enabling widespread electric vehicle market penetration. This combined with policy support and restrictions on other vehicles to improve air quality, such as Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone will increase this momentum even further.
Tyseley Energy Park will offer a range of electric charging facilities including 150kW electric vehicle rapid chargers. Vehicle and fleet owners will be offered a lower cost electric charging unit price if they commit to a defined dwell time at the charging points.
