India’s first indigenously built Hydrogen Fuel Cell bus launched in Pune

Published on August 22, 2022
Current Context: India’s first indigenously built Hydrogen Fuel Cell bus developed by CSIR and KPIT launched in Pune.
  • Union Minister of Science and Technology Jitendra Singh inaugurated India’s first indigenously built Hydrogen Fuel Cell bus. The bus was developed by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and KPIT Limited.
  • The fuel cell uses Hydrogen and Air to generate electricity to power the bus and will have water as effluent, making it an environment-friendly mode of transportation. Whereas a single diesel bus traveling long-distance routes typically emits 100 tons of CO2 annually. There are millions of such buses in India that contribute to air pollution.
  • In contrast to diesel-powered vehicles which contribute 12-14% of CO2 and particulate emission, fuel cell vehicles give zero greenhouse gas emissions.
  • The high efficiency of fuel cell vehicles and high density of hydrogen ensures that the operational cost of fuel cell trucks and buses is lower than diesel-powered vehicles. The Hydrogen Fuel Cell Bus is a product of joint development efforts by KPIT and CSIR-NCL.
