Take the green lead, says Bamford
UK needs to take the lead in green energy, according to Wrightbus boss Jo Bamford.
Bamford made the comment following the EU’s announcement of an investment in green energy. But hydrogen supporter Jo Bamford, heir to the JCB empire and owner of hydrogen double-decker manufacturer Wrightbus, says the UK needs to take the lead. Jo has urged Government to support hydrogen and says a relentless commitment to batteries, all of which are made abroad, will not help the country’s economic future.
Jo Bamford said: “It’s time the Government supported British industry, British jobs and a product which can be made and used entirely on these shores.”
Jo has already spoken of plans for a hydrogen hub in Northern Ireland and five hydrogen production facilities across the UK in order to deliver 3,000 hydrogen buses by 2024. Some will be hitting the streets in London and Aberdeen later this year.
