HYVIA @ HYVOLUTION 2024: a new partnership with the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and Hympulsion & a new architecture for the Renault Master Van H2-TECH

PRESS RELEASE

HYVIA @ HYVOLUTION 2024: A NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH THE AUVERGNE-RHÔNE-ALPES REGION AND HYMPULSION & A NEW ARCHITECTURE FOR THE RENAULT MASTER VAN H2-TECH

  • Since its creation in June 2021, HYVIA will be taking part for the 4th time in the Hyvolution Exhibition, a major international meeting place for players in the hydrogen industry, from 30 January to 1 February 2024, in Paris, Porte de Versailles.

HYVIA is heavily involved in the H2 sector and is the only French vehicle manufacturer in the “Important Projects of Common European Interest – Hy2Tech” (IPCEI). It is continuing to roll out its complete and unique ecosystem, dedicated to hydrogen mobility and its commitment to the energy transition.

  • HYVIA announces a new partnership with the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and HYmpulsion.

– HYVIA, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and HYmpulsion have decided to join forces to initiate, encourage and accelerate the deployment of hydrogen mobility in the Region.
– As a hydrogen pioneer, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region has set up substantial subsidies to support the acquisition of hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles, particularly those offered by HYVIA.
– For its part, HYmpulsion is deploying a dense network of more than 15 hydrogen filling stations in the Region and is supporting HYVIA in providing close support for its business customers.
– The first fleets are currently being deployed, with around fifty vehicles due to be delivered in the Region by 2024.

  • HYVIA presents the new architecture of the Renault Master Van H2-TECH.

– On the HYVIA booth (4J32), discover the new architecture of its hydrogen van, converted into a workshop vehicle by bodybuilder Kollé. First deliveries expected from the 2nd quarter of 2024.
– This extended offer is still based on HYVIA’s ecosystem, which includes recharging solutions, with its partners Atawey and Hysetco, financing, with HYVIA Financial Services, and maintenance, with an H2 after-sales service that is now being rolled out in Germany and Spain, after France and the Netherlands.
– The performance of Renault Master Van H2-TECH has been confirmed by the positive feedback from our pilot tests and those of our first customers in France and the Netherlands. Numerous players are gradually joining the HYVIA hydrogen mobility offer.

2024 has just begun. This is a crucial year for HYVIA, as it will enable us to move gradually from a pioneering offer to a mass production offer, at the highest level on the market, in a hydrogen sector that is still emerging. Our new partnership with the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and HYmpulsion illustrates this ramp-up in the deployment of our H2 ecosystem. Working with the entire hydrogen industry, we are fully committed to the success of our business plan, which will help to decarbonise commercial vehicle mobility

Nicolas Champetier HYVIA CEO

As a hydrogen pioneer, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region has made mobility the cornerstone of its regional H2 strategy. Based on its Zero Emission Valley project and its call for expressions of interest offering aid for the purchase of vehicles, the Region is aiming to deploy 450 H2 vehicles, with the support of manufacturers and HYVIA in particular.

Thierry Kovacs Vice-President for the Environment and Positive Ecology, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region

HYmpulsion and its shareholders have succeeded in creating a collective dynamic with all the local ecosystems. Over and above the national challenges of energy supply security, hydrogen meets a triple challenge for our regions: decarbonising light and heavy mobility, improving air quality in our valleys, and creating local jobs. It’s because the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region has a powerful hydrogen industry that it has been possible to meet all the technological challenges, enabling us to reach the stage where hydrogen can be marketed today.

NEW! A PARTNERSHIP WITH THE AUVERGNE-RHÔNE-ALPES REGION AND HYMPULSION

HYVIA, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and HYmpulsion have decided to join forces to initiate, encourage and accelerate the deployment of hydrogen mobility in the Region.

  • As a hydrogen pioneer, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region has set up substantial subsidies to support the acquisition of hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles, particularly those offered by HYVIA.

– Deployment of the Zero Emission Valley project, co-funded by the European Union and ADEME, with the following objectives: 14 distribution stations, 2 electrolysers, 400 commercial vehicles, 80 heavy-duty vehicles, including 50 retrofitted regional coaches.
– Introduction of a call for expressions of interest and a regional call for projects to subsidise the purchase of light vehicles and commercial vehicles: subsidies for hydrogen commercial vehicles range from €23,800 to €37,400, depending on the size of the company.

  • For its part, HYmpulsion is deploying a dense network of more than 15 hydrogen stations in the Region and supports HYVIA in providing close support to its professional customers.

– The first customer tests began in autumn 2023.
– As part of a continuous improvement approach, the success of these tests has strengthened collaboration and confirmed the support of professional customers.

  • Thanks to this twofold collaboration, HYVIA is demonstrating its pioneering commitment and will now be able to deploy the first fleets in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, with the delivery of around fifty vehicles scheduled for 2024.

THE WHOLE HYDROGEN ECOSYSTEM, BY HYVIA, TO SUPPORT CUSTOMERS’ MOBILITY

Charging solutions to kick-start a sustainable H2 ecosystem: HYWELL™ by HYVIA, in partnership with Atawey.

  • In partnership with Atawey, HYVIA is offering its business customers or an ecosystem of customers a station that can be installed for their own use: HYWELL™.
  • With a capacity of 100 kg / day of H2 distribution, this station can supply 20 to 25 vehicles.
  • Adapted to the needs of rapid deployment of light and intensive H2 mobility, the HYWELL™ station’s mission is to accompany the successive phases of decarbonisation of professional fleets.
  • The HYWELL™ station can be deployed quickly and easily on the most constrained installation sites thanks to its Compact & Plug & Play architecture.
  • The HYWELL™ station is also uncompromising when it comes to the operational efficiency of small and medium-sized H2 fleets with a fill-up time of just a few minutes.
  • This offering has been specifically developed to prime carbon-free hydrogen mobility ecosystems: investment and operating costs are scaled to the size of a prime fleet.

Financing solutions: HYVIA Financial Services.

  • HYVIA has developed a financing offer tailored to its customers’ needs, depending on their usage, country, region and the purchase subsidies in force.
  • Available by the end of 2023, this complete financing solution is one of the pillars of the HYVIA ecosystem, as it will offer a turnkey solution combining vehicles, maintenance and H2 supply.
  • HYVIA will incorporate the subsidies available in each region into its financing package.

Strategic aftersales deployment.

  • Aftersales for hydrogen-powered vehicles is strategic and relies on the Renault Pro+ network’s increasing expertise in this pioneering technology.
  • The European roll-out strategy is based on four pillars: increasing the H2 skills of qualified personnel, adapting the infrastructure to enable work to be carried out in complete safety, developing specific tools, and supplying spare parts.
  • To ensure the after-sales of its hydrogen vehicles, pioneering dealerships are already supporting the H2 mobility offered by HYVIA: Renault Rungis and Renault Lyon Sud in France, and Stam Amersfoort, Terwolde Groningen, Bochane Arnhem and Van Mossel Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
  • NEW: Dealerships in Hamburg in Germany and Madrid in Spain are following suit.
