Fuel Cell Bus Validation and International Coordination

The U.S. Department of Transportation, through the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), has a significant interest in the advancement of hydrogen and fuel cell technology in transit applications. The objectives of this project are to validate fuel cell technologies in transit bus applications and to coordinate data sharing between both the national fuel cell bus working group and the international fuel cell bus working group. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will evaluate fuel cell buses to determine the status of fuel cell systems for buses and provide the lessons learned to aid other fleets in implementing the next generation fuel cell systems. NREL and FTA work to coordinate data collection activities and to analyze the results from demonstration projects. Performance data will be collected and analyzed to evaluate hydrogen and fuel cell bus in real-world service in the United States. Coordination and collaboration with other FCB demonstration projects worldwide will continue.
