During last week's meeting of the Europe Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology Platform (HFP) in Brussels, Belgium, an agreement was reached between a half dozen Canadian and European cities and provinces to jointly purchase hydrogen powered buses. The hope is that by getting together to place a larger order, they can get lower costs for the buses and related infrastructure. The western Canadian province of British Columbia, as well the cities of London, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Berlin and Hamburg are participating. No time-frame has been announced yet, but zero-emission buses would certainly be welcome in crowded cities.
