Joint Initiative for hydrogen Vehicles across Europe

The JIVE project seeks to deploy 139 new zero emission fuel cell buses and associated refuelling infrastructure across five countries. JIVE will run for six years from January 2017 and is co-funded by a 32 million euro grant from the FCH JU (Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking) under the European Union Horizon 2020 framework programme for research and innovation. The project consortium comprises 22 partners from seven countries.

This is the first out of two projects. The JIVE2 project started in January 2018. Combined, the JIVE projects will deploy nearly 300 fuel cell buses in 22 cities across Europe by the early 2020s – the largest deployment in Europe to date.

JIVE is coordinated by ELEMENT ENERGY LIMITED

JIVE has received funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking under grant agreement No 735582. This Joint Undertaking receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and Hydrogen Europe and N.ERGHY.

Clean buses offer an important role in transforming our cities into more liveable and healthy places. The level of maturity reached today by fuel cell technologies should be recognised as one of the main solutions for zero emission buses.
