3Emotion (2015-2019)

3Emotion stands for Environmentally friendly Efficient Electric Motion. The project will bridge the gap between current fuel cell bus demonstration projects and larger scale deployment and the procurement foreseen by the FCH-JU Bus commercialization study. A targeted expansion of the EU fuel cell electric bus demonstration activities in five key EU bus markets (Antwerp, Cherbourg, London, Rome and Rotterdam), demonstrate the potential value of this technology for bus fleets.

Through the exchange of information about the experiences from daily FCEB operations in this locations in Europe decisions makers, transport authorities will be informed

  • the movement towards cost effective integration of FCE Buses in local bus fleets
  • the enhancement of the technical availability of the buses
  • the common technical and safety specifications for Refueling Infrastructure are
  • the toolkit for the identification of a proper mix of incentives to support the market demand side
  • the evolution of fuel cell buses (from CHIC to 3Emotion)

3Emotion will also develop a transferability plan and inform about the effective development strategy towards the FCEB and HRS commercialization.

3Emotion Bus Targets are:

  • Articulated buses on hydrogen (18 meters)
  • Integration of latest technologies to lower TCO
  • Lower hydrogen consumption (<10 kg/100 kilometer)
  • Increase lifetime
  • Increase warranties
  • Availability > 90 procent
  • Reduce bus investment cost
