Zero emission and smooth: this is the best way to describe the new offer from the Rheinisch-Bergischen District, the city of Cologne and the operator Regionalverkehr Köln (RVK).
The first fuel cell bus has arrived in Wuppertal! This is the first of a fleet of 10Van Hool buses, all fleet will progressively arrived by February. Ths hydrogen refuelling station is being built in parallel. Hydrogen will be produced via electrolyser with electricity produced from the waste incineration plant. This is the first "Waste-to-Energy" project producing hydrogen that will be used in public trnasport. No doubt that this example will inspire other cities across Europe.
After its unveiling in September in Pau, and the inauguration of the hydrogen station, today Fébus makes its inaugural trip and launches its operational commissioning.
In the Béarn region, Fébus is the first project using fuel cells and electrolysis to achieve carbon-free transport.
For the Launch IDELIS (the local public transport system operator) organises an "Open House": the 6 Fébus will be open for all users. Two "Discovery Days" are also offered to the public on 21 and 22 December.
The High V.LO-City project organised its final conference in Groningen, Netherlands, on Wednesday the 27th of November. The conference saw the project partners and interested participants coming together to discuss the project results, lessons learned and the future of zero emission buses. High V.LO-City is one of the FCH-JU funded bus deployment projects which are raising awareness and acceptance of fuel cell technology in public transport.
The High V.LO-City project is coming to an end. The final conference of the project will take place on the 27th of November 2019, in Groningen.

The airport of Toulouse-Blagnac is turning to hydrogen: A hydrogen refuelling station will be installed in 2020. The station will be in public space and used to refuel four fuel cell buses. The buses, operated by Transdev, will be used as shuttle to transport passengers between the airport runways and the terminals as well as between the terminals and the cars parkings. The company Safra, located in the region Occitanie, will deliver the buses in 2020.
The hydrogen refuelling station of the city of Pau has been inaugurated today, in the framework of the sustainable mobility week.
The station has been inaugurated by the Mayor of Pau François Bayrou and key stakeholders from the department, region and representative from the national government.
8 fuel cell buses will be refuelled in this station, which has a daily hydrogen production capacity of 268 kg.
The station will produce hyrdogen made from 100% local and renewable sources.
