CHIC has launched its final project report entitled “fuel cell electric buses: a proven zero emission solution. Key facts, results, recommendations” at the International Zero Emission Bus Conference in London, City Hall.
Together with other Fuel Cell bus projects 3Emotion promoted Fuel Cell buses for clean public transport on the TEN-T days in Rotterdam.
3Emotion shared a stand with other fuel cell bus projects, such as CHIC, HighVLOCity, H2Nodes, ...
A Fuel Cell bus was demosntrated, as it was used as shuttle bus, to bring participants from and to the central station.
The Dutch provinces of Groningen, South-Holland and the Metropolitan Region Rotterdam-The Hague have signed a Letter of Intent during the TEN-T Days in Rotterdam and expressed their commitment for the upscaling of fuel cell electric buses in their region. For these public transport authorities (PTOs), the signing marks a milestone in the roadmap towards clean buses in public transport.
Van Hool, an independent designer of buses, coaches and industrial vehicles, has entered into a contract with Transport for London (TfL) in the UK for the construction of two latest generation hydrogen buses. This new contract falls within the scope of 3Emotion. The hydrogen bus, which converts hydrogen into electricity, is currently one of the most environmentally friendly public transport vehicles: it offers local zero emissions (absolutely no harmful emissions or CO2) and significantly reduced noise levels.
