Lessons learned from JIVE's 1st CEE Roadshow

The first JIVE roadshow aimed to deploy a hydrogen bus roadshow across Central Eastern European cities interested in fuel cell technology, namely in Slovenia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. The roadshow has been a real opportunity for identified cities to trial the technology and understand the reality of hydrogen transportation.

The first roadshow in numbers"
