Environmental Benefits:

- Air quality improvements : no toxic tailpipe emissions/only water vapour

- Greenhouse gases emission reductions: with the potential to fully decarbonise public transport when hydrogen is generated from renewables

Fuel cell electric buses comply with demanding urban bus service operation.

Among the zero-emission powertrain options:

- fuel cell electric buses have the longest range (> 300 km) / no need to return to the depot during daily service 

- a tool to comply with EU, national and local regulations on low-carbon mobility and better air quality (f.e. EU air quality directive or local ambitions to clean bus fleets).

- a long term strategy focussed on reducing vulnerability to fossil fuel imports

Fuel Cell buses are very comfortable for passengers and drivers due to the

- lack of vibration

- smooth driving experience

and for the drivers, the traction power allows a quick start of the bus, even when it is full.

 

Society is moving towards a low carbon future. Engaging now:

- means benefits from co-financing supporting schemes from local, national and EU level

- allows the development of in-house expertise and infrastructure for the technologies required
