Fuel cell buses discussed at the EUROCITIES Mobility Forum

The EUROCITIES Mobility Forum promotes clean and sustainable urban mobility, and aims to raise awareness of the contributions being made, and challenges met, at local level. With this is mind, the forum meets several times per year to discuss different topics. On March 13th, 14th and 15th the EUROCITIES Mobility Forum organised a conference to exchange best practices in Karlsruhe, Germany. The topic of this Mobility Forum meeting was Empowering cities to go carbon neutral.

Sabrine Skiker from Hydrogen Europe participated in a panel session on Low emission mobility in urban areas to illustrate how fuel cell buses are a great solution towards decarbonisation: “we see fuel cell electric and battery electric buses as complementary zero emission solutions, according to the different needs for each city”. The JIVE and JIVE 2 project were highlighted as examples of zero emission mobility in urban areas.

Other participants in the session were Annette Kayser, who is an expert on the EIT Urban Mobility, and Thomas Tonger, who presented Daimler’s electric drive buses and bus rapid transit systems.

The speakers offered different solutions that cities could adopt in fostering decarbonisation and showed different perspectives on the challenges that still need to be overcome for decarbonisation to succeed.
