Objectives
Develop hydrogen powered bus technology in order to reduce the consumption of fuel and energy in the whole transportation system.
Develop efficient and environmentally 'friendly' ways to produce hydrogen.
Research the technology and development needs to establish a hydrogen refueling infrastructure.
Inform the community and key decision-makers about the potential advantages of a hydrogen-based transport system and how they can help to develop it.
In Brief

Operation of 33 hydrogen fuel cell (FC) powered buses in 9 cities around the world - Amsterdam, Barcelona, Beijing, Hamburg, London, Luxembourg, Madrid, Perth, Reykjavik

Operation of 14 hydrogen powered internal combustion engine (ICE) buses in Berlin

Design, construction and testing of the next generation of fuel cell and internal combustion engine buses

Development and testing of a new hydrogen refueling infrastructure including an integrated refuelling station with gaseous hydrogen produced from Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and bio DME (Di Methyl Ether produced from biomass) and stationary fuel cells powering the site

Development, optimization and testing of existing hydrogen infrastructure

Analysing and predicting public opinion on the risks and advantages of hydrogen and hydrogen powered transport systems


HyFLEET:CUTE will see the operation of 47 Hydrogen powered buses in regular public transport service in 10 cities on three continents.

The project brings together 31 partners from industry, Government, academic and consulting organisations. Some of the worlds' leading automotive and technology development companies, major energy companies, policy developers and transport operators are collaborating to lead Europe into the development of the Twenty second Century hydrogen-based transport system of the future.

HyFLEET:CUTE has been established under and is financially supported by the European Commission's 6th Framework Research Programme .   The European Union's Energy Policy aims at diversifying and security energy sources while reducing CO2 (Carbon Di Oxide - a gas that contributes to the world's Climate Change) and other emissions harmful to the environment and human health.   Hydrogen is a key element in this future strategy for road transport.
