The meeting was hosted by the Aberdeen City Council, a relevant partner of the consortium and with hydrogen demo projects in development. The project Consortium had the chance to visit the Hydrogen Production and Refuelling Facilities developed in the context of the Aberdeen Hydrogen Bus Project. This initiative comprises the High V.LO-City and HyTransit projects. The HyTransit project has delivered the hydrogen station as well as 6 fuel cell buses, while the High V.LO-City project has added another 4 buses to the fleet.

HYACINTH project is aimed at studying the social acceptance, by the general public and the key stakeholders, of Fuel Cell and Hydrogen (FCH) applications across Europe. Within this period, the main work has been focused on a context analysis of FCH projects in the targeted countries (Germany, France, United Kingdom, Slovenia and Spain) and a review of the acceptance assessment methodologies applied in former FCH technologies oriented studies. A systematic research design has also been developed to study public and stakeholder acceptance of FCH technologies. The project ongoing activities are dealing with the data collection via questionnaires and interviews.
