The Other Electric Bus – Meeting the ICT Regulation with Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology Webinar Series

The California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) and California Transit Association (CTA) are co-hosting a 4-part webinar series addressing the potential of fuel cell electric bus technology to meet the Air Resources Board Innovative Clean Transit Regulation. Hydrogen and fuel cells represent a promising, zero emission technology solution for transit agencies in California and beyond. With testing and analysis since the early 2000s, FCEBs are a proven one-for-one, scalable replacement for diesel buses.

The webinars will focus on the key issues, presenting information by transit agencies using fuel cell electric buses, along with technical information from industry stakeholders and regulators on the technical and market related questions transit agencies have on FCEBs and hydrogen infrastructure.

Who should attend these webinars?

  • Transit agencies
  • State and local government officials and staff
  • Environmental justice organizations
  • Public transit enthusiast
