Fuel Cell Bus Component Sizing Simulation and Study

Fuel Cell Bus Component Sizing Simulation and Study

CTE is working with a number of US transit agencies to determine what the lowest cost fuel cell bus configurations are to accomplish the greatest fraction of real-world transit routes. CTE is collecting real-world operational data from likely end users of zero-emission buses, focusing on those routes that CTE views as challenging with current battery electric bus technology. CTE is evaluating route data in a simulation environment that considers a large range of possible configurations and use cases. CTE is managing the route data selection and collection and collaborating with Ohio State University and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) during analysis.
