The Scottish city of Dundee has scrapped a project that would have seen twelve hydrogen fuel cell buses joining public transport. The Council said it needed the cash elsewhere since costs had gone up, for example, in construction, so hydrogen became “less of a priority”.

Lib Dem Councillor Fraser Macpherson said they supported scraping the hydrogen investment. Speaking to the Courier, he said: “If I’m being perfectly honest with you, it’s the one (project) we felt was less of a priority, and we didn’t look to save it (in the budget revision).”

In Dundee, the latest plan was to finance the buses in private-public partnership with Arcola Energy. A spokesperson told the local newspaper the firm had not been involved in any recent discussions on its future.
