National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Fuel Cell is one of the most promising clean energy technologies of the 21st century--environmentally friendly, reliable, quiet, and highly efficient power system. This project supports the effort of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to validate fuel cell technologies in transit bus applications and to coordinate data-sharing between other fuel cell bus projects worldwide. Fuel cell buses will be evaluated to determine the status of bus fuel cell systems, and share the "lessons learned" with other fleets preparing to implement the next generation fuel cell systems into their operations. NREL and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) will work together to coordinate data collection activities and analyze the results from demonstration projects as part of the FTA's National Fuel Cell Bus Program.
