European bus manufacturers and city representatives announce the commercialisation of fuel cell electric buses for urban transport in Brussels.

On the occasion of the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking’s (FCH JU) Stakeholder Forum on 12 November 2014, representatives of five major European bus manufacturers (Daimler Buses (EvoBus), MAN, Solaris, Van Hool and VDL Bus & Coach) have signed a joint Letter of Understanding. The Letter underlines the commitment of bus manufacturers towards the commercialisation and market introduction of fuel cell electric buses in urban public transport. Fuel cell buses run on hydrogen and constitute a zero emissions transport alternative.

The letter was symbolically handed over to Mr Olaf Scholz, mayor of Hamburg and Mr Kit Malthouse, deputy mayor of London, two cities (and CHIC partners!) showing strong committment in cleaning their public transport fleets.
