Towards interregional collaboration on hydrogen coaches

Hydrogen is a key solution to enable future green mobility and to reach the European Union goals for climate and energy. To facilitate market introduction of hydrogen-related solutions, there is a need for strong collaboration at European level. Indeed, for some technologies not yet available on the market, collaboration and joint investments between public buyers at European level can create a leverage effect and drive technology development.

This is for instance the case of hydrogen powered coaches which are not yet available on the market but for which there is a strong demand from public authorities dealing with the mobility planning at national/regional level.

The meeting will aim at bringing together regional authorities and bus manufacturers to identify Regions willing to invest in hydrogen coaches; gather inputs from the industry about the current development state and needs to further develop hydrogen coaches, possible schedule of commercialization, purchase cost and total cost of ownership targets; identify areas and tools for collaboration at European level.

When: 17 June 2019, 13 30-17 30, Back to back with the EU Sustainable Energy Week

Where: Brussels at FCH JU premises Avenue de la Toison d’Or 56 60, 1000 Brussels

What: The meeting will bring together regional authorities, bus manufacturers and hydrogen providers to:

  • identify European regions willing to invest in hydrogen coaches,
  • gather inputs from the industry about the current development state and needs to further develop hydrogen coaches, possible schedule of commercialization, purchase cost and total cost of ownership targets,
  • identify areas and tools for collaboration at European level to accelerate the deployment of hydrogen coaches.
