A hydrogen bus will soon be hitting the roads of Edmonton, and there are high hopes it will help grow the province’s hydrogen sector.

The bus looks and feels like a typical city bus, but the fuel cell uses oxygen and hydrogen to generate electricity to power the bus.

The byproducts are heat and water; there are zero emissions. The heat is recovered for heating the bus; the water comes out of the exhaust pipe.

“These are ways for us to have sustainable fuel, really look at climate action and put a big punch into that,” said Eddie Robar, branch manager of fleet and facility services for the City of Edmonton.

The pilot will run for one year in Edmonton; a second hydrogen bus will be piloted in Strathcona County.
