Manufacturing and Commercialisation of Hydrogen Buses
The project proponent is to develop two hydrogen fuel cell electric buses for use in the Australian public transport network.

AUD$1,800,000 – Victorian Government Renewable Hydrogen Commercialisation Pathways Fund
This project will develop two hydrogen fuel cell electric buses in the Melbourne suburb of Dandenong South. These buses will use a fuel cell, powered by hydrogen, to generate the electricity needed to operate them. Once built, the buses will be trialled and tested prior to deployment to bus operators for trial use on the Australian public transport system.
It is estimated that the two buses developed under this project (that replace two diesel buses in the public transport network) can reduce CO2 emissions by 30 tonnes per annum.
It is anticipated that commissioning activities of the completed buses will be undertaken by the end of the second quarter of 2024.
The Victorian Government is supporting the project through an award of AUD$1,800,000 through its Renewable Hydrogen Commercialisation Pathways Fund.
The two hydrogen fuel cell electric buses are to be purchased by Transdev Queensland to service the eastern suburbs of Brisbane. This description is archived and merged with the Transdev Mobility Trial description.
