Hydrogen fuel-cell buses: examination of issues to implement a zero-emission future with hydrogen-fueled buses and agenda for action

The Hon’ble Supreme Court in its order dated 2.7.2018 directed EPCA to look into the issue of hydrogen fuel cell buses. EPCA is filing this report in compliance with this direction. EPCA has held consultations with experts in the country, particularly, the scientists from the Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), R&D Centre which has worked extensively on hydrogen cell fuel buses. It has also consulted with government officials from key ministries as well as representatives of Tata Motors, which has deployed the first hydrogen fuel cell bus in the country and Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL).
