The Phase 0 cities come from 3 European regions and 1 Canadian. In total they will have 37 FC buses in operation.
These regions either already have established or soon to be implemented hydrogen FC bus projects which are funded from sources outide the European Joint Technology Initiative. These are generally regions which have considerable learning and expertise in hydrogen powered transport which will be shared with all other partners in CHIC. Phase 0 regions are, to a large extent, the ‘leaders
and teachers’ of the CHIC project.
The phase 0 cities are: Hamburg, Cologne, Berlin, and Whistler (Canada)
