STATUS REPORT ON FUEL CELL BUSES IN UNITED STATES
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has recently published a status report documenting progress and accomplishments from demonstrations of fuel cell transit buses in the United States. The report encompasses results from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)/NREL fuel cell bus evaluations as well as plans for the U.S. Federal Transit Administration’s National Fuel Cell Bus Program. It describes the status and challenges of fuel cell propulsion for transit, summarizes the introduction of fuel cell transit buses in North America, and provides an analysis of the combined results from fuel cell transit bus demonstrations evaluated by NREL with a focus on data from August 2008 through July 2009.
