AC Transit's hydrogen fuel cell bus evaluation surpasses targets

Results from a National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) evaluation of hydrogen fuel cell electric buses (FCEBs) at Alameda Contra-Costa Transit District (AC Transit) in California show that FCEBs have made significant progress toward commercialization, surpassing the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) ultimate technical targets for fuel cell operating hours and reliability. NREL collects and analyzes transit agency data to validate FCEB performance and cost as compared to DOE and U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) targets and conventional transit technologies like diesel or compressed natural gas. The DOE Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO) in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and DOT's Federal Transit Administration fund NREL's evaluations and the results provide feedback and direction to early-stage research and development. In a recent FCTO ...
