Report on Fuel-Cell Buses

The CHIC project, a long-running EU project that demonstrated fuel-cell buses in several European cities, has released a final reportThe report included several points relevant for Giantleap, such as the problematic availability of fuel-cell buses: their measured availability was close to reach 85% at the end of the project, which is still too low.

Operators were however optimistic that this number can be increased to the levels of diesel buses, focusing on improved supply chains and diagnosis tools – which are actually the focus of Giantleap.

The Giantleap consortium is planning activities in co-operation with other European projects in fuel-cell buses for the first half of 2017.
