ZEB Committee #8 2024: Hydrogen in Transit: Operational and Procurement Strategies

CUTRIC’s Zero Emission Bus (ZEB) Committee is a national forum for CUTRIC’s members to share up-to-date information and data related to ZEB procurements, deployments, predictive and empirical data and funding and financing options. It will ensure that Canadian transit agencies have access to the highest-quality transit-led ZEB data and ZEB procurement and deployment knowledge across Canada and the United States. This Committee reports to CUTRIC’s Board of Directors and is chaired by Erin Cooke of Winnipeg Transit.

The ZEB Committee will help Canada achieve 5,000 ZEBs by 2026 by supporting knowledge and experience sharing related to ZEB procurements and deployments.

The ZEB Committee will provide regular feedback and insight for policy leadership, as well as guidance to the federal Canada Infrastructure Bank, Federation of Canadian Municipalities, Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Canada, Ministry of Industry, Science and Innovation, Ministry of Infrastructure and Communities, Ministry of Natural Resources Canada, and Ministry of Transportation

In this session, we deep dive into the operational dynamics and procurement strategies associated with integrating hydrogen fuel cell technology in transit systems. Key topics include infrastructure planning for hydrogen fueling and the challenges posed by current supply chain dynamics, especially in the context of transit operations. Additionally, an overview of industry-specific challenges encountered during procurement processes, particularly for organizations at the forefront of adopting hydrogen technologies. We aim to link these operational and procurement strategies to broader joint-procurement initiatives, underlining the importance of collaborative approaches in scaling hydrogen transit solutions. This session is crucial for transit agencies and industry professionals considering or currently implementing hydrogen-based mobility solutions.
