Webinar May 17: Fuel Cell Electric Bus Progress toward Meeting Technical Targets
May 14, 2018
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Fuel Cell Technologies Office will present a live webinar titled "Fuel Cell Electric Buses: Progress toward Meeting Technical Targets" on Thursday, May 17, from 10 to 11 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time.
Leslie Eudy of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will discuss progress made toward meeting technical targets for fuel cell electric buses (FCEBs). In 2012, DOE and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) established technical targets to measure the progress of FCEBs toward commercialization. Targets include performance metrics such as fuel cell hour accumulation, fuel economy, availability, and reliability. Cost targets include capital, major components, and maintenance. NREL, under funding from both DOE and FTA, has been evaluating the performance of FCEBs compared to these technical targets and to conventional buses in similar service.
This webinar will provide the most recent performance results from FCEBs operated by six transit agencies. The webinar will be recorded and conclude with a 15-minute Q&A portion.
