A Report on Hydrogen Bus Demonstrations Worldwide, 2002-2007

Between 2002 and 2007 more than 20 cities in the United States, Europe, China, Japan and Australia have demonstrated buses powered by fuel cells or hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engines, as well as a variety of fueling and related technologies. The project team used a method of in-depth targeted interviews to gather insight from key participants in these hydrogen bus demonstration projects. The resulting report analyzes lessons learned from the demonstrations, identifies key remaining challenges for introduction of the technology, and suggests potential roles for government in supporting commercialization of fuel cell buses.
