Upcoming Webinar September 12: Fuel Cell Buses
September 4, 2013
On Thursday, September 12, the Energy Department will present a webinar about fuel cell buses. There are currently more than 70 fuel cell buses in operation in 10 countries, and another 50 hydrogen buses are expected to come on line in the next 18 months. These zero emission buses are showing significant improvements in fuel economy over conventionally powered buses, and experts predict dramatic reductions in their relative life cycle cost in the coming decade. On behalf of the Federal Transit Administration's National Fuel Cell Bus Program, the Center for Transportation and the Environment will present a summary of worldwide fuel cell bus activities, highlighting key strategies and partnerships and how these are shaping the future of fuel cell bus adoption. This will be followed by a presentation by the California Fuel Cell Partnership on its California Fuel Cell Bus Roadmap, providing a strategy and funding approach to move fuel cell bus technology from the current stage of full-scale validation to early commercialization through Centers of Excellence by 2016.
