Scientists from the Czech Republic and Norway are working together on an innovative project to use hydrogen on Czech railways

A research project called RegioHyt has brought together Czech and Norwegian scientists in an ambitious effort to utilize hydrogen as a fuel for Czech railways. This innovative consortium was formed by the Norwegian research institute SINTEF and Czech organizations including ÚJV Řež, University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague, the Railway Research Institute, the Czech Hydrogen Technology Platform, the Transport Research Centre, and the Czech Railway Administration.
