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.
