- Transportation accounts for approximately 25 per cent of Canada’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
- Transit accounts for approximately 70 per cent of Mississauga’s GHG emissions
- The City of Mississauga’s CCAP aims to reduce GHG emissions by 80 per cent by 2050
- Approximately 475 diesel buses at MiWay will need to be replaced with zero emissions buses
Phase 1 of the trial involved technical planning and consultation sessions between CUTRIC’s transit, industry, and academic members. In April 2021, Phase 1 culminated in the launch of a feasibility study of fleet electrification using FCEBs at Mississauga Transit (MiWay).
Phase 2 of the trial involves putting FCEBs into service on Canadian roads. As part of the second and subsequent phases of the trial, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), FCEB assembly companies, and low-emissions hydrogen suppliers from Canada are working with interested transit agencies and academic researchers to achieve the following:
