Dublin City University playing a key role in Ireland’s first hydrogen bus trial

Dublin’s first hydrogen-powered bus is undergoing trials in the Irish capital and will this week operate a route taking in Dublin City University’s campuses.

Built by Caetano, the single decker bus was launched in early November and has been taking various routes around the city as part of a strategic initiative to develop next generation technologies for environmentally sustainable transport.

The collaborative innovative trial with industrial, commercial and academic partners is focussed on researching, testing and developing hydrogen as a viable, sustainable low emission solution for transport.

Dr. James Carton, Assistant Professor in Sustainable Energy and Hydrogen Technology at Dublin City University (DCU), and also co-founder of Hydrogen Mobility Ireland (HMI) and Hydrogen Ireland Association, is deeply involved in spearheading the research and analysis of the data from the bus, and disseminating valuable information from the trial to enable the further rollout of zero-emission transport.
