Main proponents:

Transdev Queensland

Main end-use classification:

Hydrogen mobility

Status:

Under development

Estimated cost:

AUD$3 million

Other involvement:

 

Production details: Location:

Queensland, Australia

Announced funding:

Up to AUD$1.5 million – Queensland Government Hydrogen Industry Development Fund (Round Two grant)

Project description:

Transdev provides public transport services in six locations in Australia and New Zealand, including Brisbane, Queensland.

In August 2022, the Queensland Government announced a AUD$1.5 million grant to Transdev (under Round Two of the State Government’s Hydrogen Industry Development Fund) for the purchase of two hydrogen fuel cell electric buses to service the eastern suburbs of Brisbane. Transdev is to match the AUD$1.5 million State Government funding.

Transdev would test the buses on existing public transport routes and would provide operational data to TransLink to help plan for the most efficient integration of hydrogen into zero emissions public transport.

The project would also help create local hydrogen demand and raise awareness of the role for hydrogen-fuelled vehicles in public transport.
