A fuel cell bus is an electric vehicle that uses compressed hydrogen gas as its energy source and storage. The fuel cell power module on board of the bus generates electricity through an electro-chemical reaction leaving only water and heat as by-products.

France has recognised the importance of sustainable transportation. With the knowledge that mobility is a key contributor to air pollution, there is immense pressure to reduce CO2 emissions. Evidence of this is the ban on diesel and petrol car sales from 2040 and the strategy for clean mobility put forward…
A fuel cell bus offers all the benefits of electric drive while improving the bus performance with no compromise in service and operation compared to other zero-emission technologies and no road side infrastructure.
As longtime partners for clean air in California, public transit agencies play a pivotal role in transitioning vehicle fleets away from fossil fuel-powered technologies to zero-emission alternatives.
Transit agencies and operators in the UK need to find ways to improve air quality in their communities while maintaining quality of service. The choice that face cities and transit authorities is what technology to deploy; fuel cell electric buses or battery electric buses.
The city bus market in China is massive, with a total of 651,000 registered city buses in 2017 and more than 90,000 electric buses purchased annually, according to Interact Analysis.
Over the past four decades, Ballard has developed several generations of zero-emission fuel cell modules that have powered transit buses for 14 million kilometres of operation.
Europe has long been a leader in recognising the role of hydrogen in the decarbonisation of transportation and the resulting socio-economic and environmental benefits.
Scandinavia is at the forefront of the fight against climate change, committing to renewable energy further and faster than any other region in Europe. The people of Scandinavia are moving away from fossil fuels and embracing a zero-emission future with hydrogen.
Find out why fuel cell electric buses can be the solution for transport operators looking to deploy entire fleets of electric buses with high-level operational flexibility and performance.
