NewBusFuel is an ongoing study funded by Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking with the goal of resolving the knowledge gap for establishment of large-scale hydrogen refueling infrastructure for fuel cell buses – silent electric buses with long driving range and with zero local emissions.

An ambitious multi-country, multi-partner project will demonstrate that hydrogen can support Europe’s future transport demands

European public-private partnerships are making a difference in aviation, bio-based products & materials, electronic components and systems, health, transport & energy.


As the COP21 starts, CHIC (Clean Hydrogen in European Cities), a flagship zero emission bus project saves over four million litres of fuel and demonstrates that the fuel cell bus technology is ready to underpin the decarbonisation of our urban centres.

As a follow-up of the FCH JU funded ADEL project, a breakthrough  in solid oxide electrolyser durability has been recently published.

A high temperature solid oxide electrolysis stack has been operated over 6’000 hours at 700°C 0.5A/cm2 without significant degradation. This is a premiere for this technology.

1 July 2014, Brussels – Members of the European industry association for Fuel Cells and Hydrogen, NEW-IG, have unanimously endorsed Board mandates of Air Liquide, Daimler and Intelligent Energy to lead the group for the next period of two years. In a General Assembly taking place on 30 June 2014 in Brussels, Members recognised the representatives’ vital contributions to the success so far and entrusted them with leading the organisation forward.

The five Joint Technology Initiatives – IMI, Clean Sky, Eniac, FCH, and ARTEMIS – held a week-long event, Innovation in Action, at the European Parliament.  The objective was to present their achievements to date as well as their vision on future challenges.

The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking welcomes the European Commission’s proposal to renew and strengthen its mandate. It is one of five proposed research and innovation partnerships under Horizon 2020.
