Zero-Emission Buses

Optare Metrodecker Blue

Zero emission buses are expected to dominate the future of public transport. Fuel cell electric buses convert stored hydrogen to electricity with only water vapour as a by-product so are zero emission in operation.

Using hydrogen produced from renewable sources can make them very low carbon too. Hydrogen has high energy density so these buses can have long range without adding weight to the vehicle and compromising on performance or passenger carrying capacity.

All together this means that hydrogen fuel cell buses are a great option for larger vehicles and longer routes without any compromise between carbon emissions and air quality.

Ballard Motive Solutions has developed an integrated and optimised hybrid powertrain for buses, providing manufacturers with complete system design and integration supply with whole life-cycle service and support focused on quality, safety and compliance.

Working collaboratively with an international network of suppliers, partners and clients, we work as a powertrain developer and integrator to some of the biggest bus manufacturing companies in the world.

Motive Solutions is always looking for opportunities for product innovation that allows us to expand our portfolio around the world.
