The goal of this dedicated training is to equip bus operators and authorities (PTO/PTA) with up-to-date and necessary information about the planning, procurement, operations and maintenance of fuel cell buses, with this knowledge coming from the JIVE projects and FC bus sector itself. This is the first in a series of workshops that UITP will organise to transfer JIVE lessons learned on Fuel Cell Electric Buses (FCEBs). This online 3rd November training session will provide overall insights on the key issues that PTO/PTAs need to consider when deploying and operating FCEBs in their cities. The upcoming series of workshops focus on specific topics and delve deeper into learnings generated by JIVE projects.
The hydrogen bus (or fuel cell electric bus) does not emit CO2 or pollutant emissions and presents operational conditions similar to that of a diesel bus. Recent developments in the EU legislation for the promotion of clean and energy efficient road public transport vehicles (EU Clean Vehicles Directive 2019/1161 of 20 June 2019) have triggered an interest among public transit companies, operators and authorities given that a certain percentage of buses have to be clean from 2021 onwards (with a more stringent target in 2025). Hence, with most metropolitan areas targeting zero-emission environments considering these recent developments, an increasing number of cities and transport companies are considering the Fuel Cell Electric solution for their future bus fleets. Fuel cell buses, as one of the most ready and promising zero emission technologies to decarbonise, have created great curiosity and attention among PTO/PTA stakeholders.
In this context, the UITP and Clean Bus Europe Platform together with JIVE project coordinator, Element Energy, and dissemination leader, Hydrogen Europe, have designed this training programme on Fuel Cell Electric Buses. The training incudes sessions on:
This online training aims to increase the participant’s knowledge on how to set-up and plan FCEBs, procurement of hydrogen buses and infrastructure, their implementation and operations from the experiences of JIVE cities.
