Halifax will produce a report on integrating fuel cells into the city’s transit buses and ferries, but the hydrogen alternative was almost completely ignored 

December 31, 2019 |

In Canada, CBC reports that Richard Zurawski— a prominent voice in politics, academia as well as a media personality who became a councilor of Halifax— motivated his city’s elected committee to develop a report on integrating hydrogen fuel cells to power transit buses and ferries. “We could do hydrogen here, it just takes political will power… If we start now, who knows where we will be in 10 or 20 years.” A professor of chemical engineering at Queens University discussed the success Europe has had in transitioning their bus fleets to run on hydrogen. The professor believes that Nova Scotia could use wind power to create hydrogen energy, or hydrogen could be shipped from Quebec where it could be made from hydropower. Unfortunately, while new technologies were part of the original report, hydrogen was not included, therefore as a result of Zurawski’s initiative, a separate report on hydrogen will be prepared.
