Tyseley Refuelling HubThe UK’s first multi-fuel, open access, low and zero carbon fuel refuelling station
The UK’s first multi-fuel, open access, low and zero carbon fuel refuelling station is now open and ready to receive commercial fleet, public transport fleet and private vehicles.
Offering Hydrogen, Compressed Natural Gas, Biodiesel and Electrical Vehicle charging options, the unmanned facility is available 24/7 for refuelling with integrated pay at pump options that accept credit, debit and fuel card payments.
The station has benefited from £10 million investment so far from a combination of public and private funding, including £1.5 million from Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership. The facility is supporting the City in its commitment to reduce the levels of air pollution across the Birmingham by refuelling the hydrogen double decker busses purchased by Birmingham City Council. The TEP refuelling station is part of the Birmingham Transport Plan, supporting the introduction and supply of cleaner fuels to improve air quality across the City.
Motive Hydrogen Refuelling Station
Commissioned in 2021, the refuelling station is the largest green hydrogen refuelling station in the UK. It takes power from a dedicated offshore wind turbine and generates zero carbon, fuel cell grade hydrogen. The site comprises of a car refueller operating at both 700 bar and 350 bar. Two bus refuellers operating at 350 bar and a tube trailer refueller operating at up to 450 bar. The site can generate over a tonne of hydrogen per day. Enough to fuel up to 40 buses a day.
Hydrogen is produced on site using a 3MW Motive 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.

Gd+ an advanced HVO fuel
The UK’s leading provider of HVO, GBF offer a simple, clean alternative to diesel. Gd+ is a 100% drop-in replacement for diesel and gasoil, creating an opportunity to turn highly polluting engines and generators into clean ones.

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.
