Who should use this section?

This section on fuel cell bus (FCB) Implementation, documents the learning that has occurred from the most recent FCB projects, including the procurement of the FCBs and Hydrogen Refuelling Stations (HRSs). Deployment and Operations will be updated as more information becomes available.

It is intended primarily for the benefit of new adopters of the technology.

The Fuel Cell and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) provided funding to the JIVE and JIVE 2 projects to support the deployment and commercialisation of Fuel Cell Buses (FCBs) across Europe.

What can you expect? Stages of FC Bus Implementation

The project development and implementation process for a Fuel cell Bus deployment are considered here in 5 significant stages as shown in the chart below and the side directory.

To date, and in step with the progress of the JIVE projects, best practice advice focusses on key issues relating to the first three of these stages:
