Zero-emission electric buses to hit city’s streets 

The 12 buses are part of a European scheme to deploy 152 zero-emission buses.

Twelve hydrogen fuel cell electric buses are to hit the streets of Dundee as part of a €25m European project.

A total of 14 European cities, including Aberdeen, are taking part in the scheme, deploying a total of 152 zero-emission buses.

The cities are taking part through the Scottish Cities Alliance which works to promote the country’s economic potential, with a commitment to make cities efficient and sustainable.

The long-term plan is to create a state-of-the-art integrated energy park deploying hydrogen fuel cell buses, fleet vehicle and hydrogen and alternative fuels.

Councillor John Alexander said: “I am delighted that Aberdeen and Dundee have been successful within these ambitious projects.

“Working with the Scottish Cities Alliance, these buses and hydrogen refuelling infrastructure will further progress the decarbonisation of our cities by providing zero emission buses for our citizens.

“Dundee plans to create a state-of-the-art integrated energy park deploying hydrogen fuel cell buses, fleet vehicles and hydrogen and alternative fuels refuelling infrastructure with energy being derived from renewable technologies.

“This project will be a ‘first of its kind’ in Scotland combining heat, power and transport.”
