“Hydrogen as a service”: HRS AND BNP PARIBAS join forces to launch a leasing offer for H refueling stations2
Champ-sur-Drac, July 26, 2021
HRS, designer and manufacturer of French hydrogen stations, leader in its market, announces a strategic partnership with BNP PARIBAS Leasing Solutions to offer a financing offer coupled with the purchase of a refueling station. This new way of accessing hydrogen mobility, which is both practical and flexible, should encourage new players to take the step towards low-carbon mobility.
DEMOCRATIZING ACCESS TO HYDROGEN MOBILITY
This innovative financing solution for hydrogen refueling stations HRS will facilitate access to hydrogen mobility, and thus accelerate the deployment of associated ecosystems promoting the transition of transport to clean, environmentally friendly energies.
So, HRS today has a complete offer of firm purchase leasing, making it possible to respond to all types of market demands, some future operators preferring to smooth the CAPEX of infrastructure over several years. In addition, subsidies from ADEME (and other organizations) can be integrated into the two funding models available.
FREEDOM AND FLEXIBILITY
This innovation in the deployment of stations consists of a leasing solution with option to purchase with our partner BNP PARIBAS Leasing Solutions, of hydrogen refueling infrastructure HRS intended for customers who would like to join a “Hydrogen As a Service” model.
In addition, during the term of the lease, the operator may decide to definitively purchase the station or to increase its capacity. For example, a project can start with a station of 200 kg / day, to evolve after two years towards a station of 1 ton / day. This flexibility will allow the customer to support the ramp-up of the deployment of its vehicle fleet by adapting the capacity of the station according to its needs. BNP PARIBAS Leasing Solutions, present in more than 20 countries, will be able to integrate the station. HRS in a global hydrogen transition offer that will also include the leasing of H vehicles2.
AN OPTIMIZED BUSINESS MODEL
This new marketing method strengthens the business model of HRS. In fact, at the conclusion of the leasing contract, BNP PARIBAS Leasing Solutions acquires the stations, then leasing them to the operator.
