Following the Conceptualisation of the project, the next task is to find ways to meet the costs of the project and commence planning. This Section is divided into:

  • Sourcing Finance – both in terms of determining and covering the costs.
  • Planning for HRS Operations and FCB Operations– general and specific challenges and Best Practice Solutions.

Getting the money for any innovative initiative can frequently be complex and difficult. Especially when the initiative is being developed and implemented within a commercial, public transport bus operating environment. 

The operational stage is the most essential aspect of an FCB project. It is the reason for embarking on the project. It will provide critical information to determine the future of the application of H2 and FCB technology at that site. It will also be the most public activity of the project and therefore, most open to scrutiny. Suc-cess is critical, and only careful and thorough planning can achieve this. The saying "Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail" certainly holds when applied to an FCB Project.
