Demonstration Project of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Buses and an Associated System for Hydrogen Supply in Mexico City, Phase I

Project Summary

The immediate objective of this proposal is to foster the development, manufacture and large-scale commercialization of hydrogen-fuel cell buses (HFCBs) in Mexico through the initial operation of a fleet of 10 fuel cell buses in Mexico City during a 5-year period. This project represents the first part of a two-Part project designed to test –under conditions of commercial operation– a zero emissions technological option for public transport in a dynamic metropolitan area situated at 2,200 meters above sea level. A total of 3,000,000 km of accumulated use will be gained by the end of the 5-year demonstration period.
