Today there are over 120 hydrogen buses operating in Europe, with plans to reach over 1,200 by 2025.
So, which is the market potential for fuel cell buses? How to deal with the infrastructural aspects? Is this technology going to find its place in the urban environment or mostly in intercity routes?
A webinar to discuss state-of-the-art and outlooks concerning a technology which is gaining strong interest in the framework of the European Green Deal (it is worth mentioning the 8 billion euros strategy launched by the German government).
Moreover, fuel cell buses are expected to disclose new possibilities for the long distance transport electrification.
