Hybrid Electric and Fuel Cell Research at University of Alabama

This project supports education and research at the University of Alabama in terms of development of new hybrid electric and fuel cell technologies in transit applications. Specifically, the project will establish research and development in hybrid electric and fuel cell vehicles through the formulation of cooperative agreements and partnerships with major vehicle and fuel companies, engine and powertrain suppliers, governmental laboratories and regional universities. Ongoing efforts within the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to advance hybrid electric and fuel cell technology provide the foundation for moving toward a cleaner and more efficient way of transporting the transit riding public.
