Transport for London (TfL) recently launched a tender for the bulk procurement of fuel cell buses. Working in partnership with other UK cities (Aberdeen, Birmingham, Dundee), TfL is inviting potential suppliers of fuel cell buses to join a framework for the supply of single- and double-decker vehicles to cities across the UK and potentially abroad.
The bulk procurement of buses is intended significantly to increase yearly order volumes in Europe and will play a key role in reducing costs and bringing this technology closer to a commercial reality.
The procurement activity is part of the JIVE (Joint Initiative for hydrogen Vehicles across Europe) project, an EU-funded project deploying 139 new zero emission fuel cell buses across nine cities, the first deployment of this scale in Europe. The project is coordinated by Element Energy. . . .
