Webinar September 12: Fuel Cell Buses

September 12, 2013

On September 12, the Energy Department presented a webinar on fuel cell buses. 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.

Following an update by DOE's National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Center for Transportation and the Environment presented a summary of worldwide fuel cell bus activities on behalf of the Federal Transit Administration's National Fuel Cell Bus Program, highlighting key strategies and partnerships and how these are shaping the future of fuel cell bus adoption. This was followed by a presentation by the California Fuel Cell Partnership on its California Fuel Cell Bus Roadmap, providing a strategy to move fuel cell bus technology from the current stage of full-scale validation to early commercialization through Centers of Excellence by 2016. For more information, refer to the slides and recording of the webinar.
