Ecological city transport system. demonstration, evaluation and research project of hydrogen fuel cell bus transportation system of the future (ECTOS)

Objective

A consortium of leading European corporations within the area of hydrogen production and fuel distribution, vehicle manufacturing join forces in Reykjavik, Iceland to perform a real scale comparative assessment of the effect of changing the transport energy base from fossil fuel to regenerative produced hydrogen. The ECTOS-project involves research, demonstration and evaluation of hydrogen infrastructure and fuel cell buses. The research will focus on the socio-economic implications of transforming from one fuel to another, transport model research, life-cycle analysis, environmental monitoring and cost-benefit analysis Iceland has been chosen for the project as it is possible to run a hydrogen project in a CO2 free manner, that is there will be no emission of greenhouse gases in the whole energy chain. Results and experience will then be channelled into other similar European projects through various dissemination activities.
