Thank you for visiting our portal website on the application of fuel cells and hydrogen in (primarily) city buses.
The scope of this website is to give an overview of data, knowledge and experiences about fuel cell electric buses and hydrogen refuelling infrastructure in Europe. The information on this website focuses mainly on bus operators and public entities that are willing to implement the fuel cell technology in their bus fleet.
About a decade of maturing the technology for bus application has elapsed, from the early development in 2005 to precommercialisation in the 2015 – 2020 time frame, i.e. through the various TRL or Technology Readiness stages and thanks to the FCH JU Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking. In 2017, some 83 fuel cell electric buses will be deployed in by some 20 cities in 10 European member states. The majority has been procured through the various FCH JU projects
A recent study Fuel Cell Electric Buses – Potential for Sustainable Public Transport in Europe, commissioned by the FCH-JU to Roland Berger Consultants and published in June 2015, it was shown that fuel cell electric buses have much to offer when it comes to zero emission urban transport.
While the cost of the buses and the fuel has come down considerably and is poised to follow this path in the future, it is of equal utmost importance that the technology be understood and embraced by all stakeholders, not in the least the operators, as the technology of choice.
In preparation of this website, effort has been made to provide the most correct and clear information. All data is collected and regularly reviewed by an editorial committee, formed by staff from different organisations (Hyer, Van Hool, PJ Consulting and WaterstofNet). If inaccurate or missing information is brought to our attention, a reasonable effort will be made to correct it. Remarks on the content or the quality of the website can be posted on the contact page.
If you want to add your company to the list of suppliers, please send a request via the contact page.
