Sharp fall in hydrogen bus costs – FCH JU

European Commission’s R&D arm will continue to fund projects across hydrogen value chain

The cost of a hydrogen bus in the EU has come down from €1.8mn ($2mn) to €500,000 since 2008 thanks to research and development in associated technologies, according to Bart Biebuyck, executive director of the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU). The FCH JU is a public-private partnership between the European Commission and industry association Hydrogen Europe designed to accelerate the deployment of hydrogen technologies. It invests equal parts public and private money into technology research and pilot projects, providing €2bn in finance to 287 projects since its inception. The FCH JU saw dramatic cost reductions following investments in seven hydrogen bus pilot projects.
