The Union Minister gave this information by sharing a video on Twitter. There is also a glimpse of the bus. It was written in the video that inspired by PM Narendra Modi’s National Green Hydrogen Mission, India’s first indigenously developed “Hydrogen Fuel Cell Bus” developed by KPIT CSIR was unveiled in Pune.
According to the information, this fuel cell uses hydrogen and air to generate electricity and power the bus, making it an eco-friendly transport mode. If compared to a diesel bus, it typically emits 100 tonnes of CO2 every year on long-distance routes and there are lakhs of diesel buses across the country. Dr Jitendra Singh said that the operational cost of hydrogen fuel cell trucks is comparatively less than that of diesel buses. It can bring revolutionary changes across the country, especially in the freight sector.
Dr Jitendra Singh said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Hydrogen Vision’ aims to make India self-reliant to meet climate change goals, clean energy as well as clean energy. The Union Minister said that around 12-14 per cent CO2 emissions come from diesel-run heavy vehicles. Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles provide an excellent means of eliminating on-road carbon emissions in this area. It is expected that soon such buses can run on the roads.
