'Nearly everything doubled this year in clean hydrogen': BNEF report
“Nearly everything has doubled already this year in the world of clean hydrogen, and we expect the momentum to continue in the months ahead,” said Martin Tengler, lead hydrogen analyst at BNEF.
“More than 40 countries have now published a hydrogen strategy or are developing one. More than 90 projects are being planned worldwide to use hydrogen in industry. Electricity generators have almost doubled their planned hydrogen-fired turbine capacity since January.”

"Getting to a zero-emission future requires the partnership of government and industry, and the utilization of every tool at our disposal," said Jerome Gregeois, Director Commercial Vehicles Development at Hyundai-Kia and chair of the CaFCP board of directors. "At Hyundai-Kia, we know that battery and fuel cell electric technologies are needed to meet the diverse needs of our customers."
"The successful rollout of heavy-duty, zero-emission trucks requires the interplay of several key elements. In the case of FCETs, that includes synchronizing vehicle rollout with hydrogen fueling infrastructure, and renewable and zero-carbon hydrogen production," said Joe Cappello, CEO of Iwatani Corporation of America and vice chair of CaFCP.
"California has set aggressive goals to achieve zero-emission fleets across vehicle categories, including cars, buses, and trucks," said Bill Elrick, executive director of CaFCP. "We can only achieve these goals through collaboration between government and private industry, and policies that promote and attract investment. The time to act – and invest – is now, if we intend to transition quickly and successfully to a self-sustaining market."

Hydrogen fuel cell buses achieve highest fleet mileage in AC Transit’s new ZETBTA study
Namie, Japan and Lancaster, California ink historic agreement to be ‘world’s first’ hydrogen municipalities
AC Transit Publishes the Groundbreaking Zero-Emission Transit Bus Technology Analysis (ZETBTA): An unprecedented test of fuel cell electric, battery electric, diesel hybrid, and conventional diesel bus technologies; a guide for ZEB transition worldwide
The ZETBTA is a robust side-by-side evaluation of the predominant engine technologies in use at transit agencies worldwide: fuel-cell electric bus (FCEB), battery electric bus (BEB), diesel hybrid, and conventional diesel bus propulsion systems.
“AC Transit currently operates all five propulsion technologies and is uniquely positioned to support this rigorous study,” says General Manager Michael Hursh. “For Long Range Planners, this is an unrivaled collection of years of research, transit planning, and design; made stronger because the propulsion metrics are not cobbled from several sources but instead one agency, with roadway testing on the same routes, and in the same service environment.”
The study launched in July 2020 and integrated lessons learned and best practices gleaned from our extensive experience deploying ZEB technologies, including the development of innovative workforce training programs, data integration and management, and transit deployment viability.
This initial iteration of the ZETBTA will help transit agency leaders understand step-by-step the capital cost, performance, and operating cost between ZEB types when comparing performance to conventional diesel bus technologies. The study is also a collection of energy data to develop metrics for costs, mileage, reliability, and availability.
