Officially launched on Tuesday (Jan 18), the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Bus Council (HFC Bus Council) aims to educate policymakers, regulators and transportation stakeholders on both the hydrogen vehicles themselves and the supporting infrastructure.

Founding members of the council include NFI Group, SunLine Transit Agency, Foothill Transit, Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada, Stark Area Regional Transit Authority, Utah Transit Authority, Nel, Ballard and many more.

With the industry experts on board, the group will together expand development, deployment, and utilisation of safe, clean, and efficient hydrogen fuel cell electric buses, and create additional market opportunities to advance the relevant technologies.

Paul Soubry, President and CEO of NFI, said, “Fuel cell technology is a proven path to extended-range zero-emission mobility, and we are on the cusp accelerating its deployment and delivering immediate greenhouse gas reduction, cleaner air, and quiet transportation.

“Through leveraging a public-private approach, the HFC Bus Council brings the best of all worlds together in educating stakeholders on fuel cell technology, advocating for funding, and sharing key learnings from deployments across America.

“NFI has been a fuel cell leader for over a decade, and the more momentum we build together, the healthier our communities are.”
