fact sheet on a new fuel cell bus project in Burbank, California

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has recently published a fact sheet on a new fuel cell bus project in Burbank, California. Because of its commitment to clean technologies, the City of Burbank is testing a fuel cell bus in its mass transit system - BurbankBus. The bus was designed and built by Proterra, a Colorado-based bus manufacturer, and features a battery-dominant plug-in hybrid configuration with Hydrogenics fuel cells and lithium titanate batteries. The project was funded primarily through a grant from the California Air Resources Board. To download the fact sheet directly, go to: http://www.nrel.gov/hydrogen/pdfs/47893.pdf

BurbankBus is collaborating with the U.S Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory to evaluate the bus. The agency will operate the bus in service for at least one year. During that time, NREL will collect and analyze performance and operations data on the bus. The first evaluation results report should be available early next year.

NREL's Technology Validation team evaluates fuel cell buses for the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Transit Administration. All NREL Technology Validation publications (including light-duty fuel cell electric vehicles and forklifts) are also available on the NREL site at: http://www.nrel.gov/hydrogen/proj_tech_validation.html
