A Matter of Economic Opportunity

Massachusetts citizens pay a price for being at the end of the energy pipeline: increasing costs, supply volatility, and dependence on energy from outside the state and region. Massachusetts has the opportunity to significantly impact the local economy by leveraging the Commonwealth’s entrepreneurial know-how, venture capital, and quality workforce to bolster its leadership in the creation of advanced clean transportation solutions.

Hydrogen is an increasingly important part of the region’s current clean energy economy. Why? Simply put, hydrogen offers the benefits of electricity with the convenience of fuel. The result: Zero emissions. Zero compromise

Zero-Emissions Fuel Cell Bus and Hydrogen Station in Service at MBTA

PRESS RELEASE: Billerica, Mass. — Nuvera helped celebrate Boston’s first zero-emissions fuel cell bus and hydrogen refueling station at a recent press event attended by Massachusetts and MBTA officials. The bus and station are deployed at the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) through the National Fuel Cell Bus Program (NFCBP), which is sponsored by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The NFCBP is helping bring fuel cell and hydrogen technology into everyday use and expand clean transportation in our nation. 

Hydrogen-powered fuel cells enable zero-emissions buses to run by converting hydrogen fuel into electricity and water with no exhaust pollutants. The result is an electric vehicle that is quickly refueled instead of being recharged. Fuel cells increase fuel economy, reduce use of petroleum, and advance U.S. energy independence since hydrogen is produced domestically.
