Ballard PEM Fuel Cell Powered ZEV Bus 931817

Ballard Power Systems Inc. and SAIC Canada have built the world's first Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) bus powered by Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells. The 32-foot transit bus demonstrates that PEM fuel cells can provide the same performance as a diesel engine but with no harmful emissions. Phase 1 of the commercialization program began in November 1990 and was completed in March 1993. A detailed description of the bus configuration along with operating results to date will be reported. The overall plan to achieve commercialization of 40-foot PEM fuel cell ZEV buses by 1998 will be described.
