Banana bus for Brisbane: The Australian city looks to introduce a new transport system but without the digging and has come up with the Metrobus. Sold as if it were a subway, the Metrobus is in fact a twin-bend or bi-articulated electric bus as long as 30 metres. So far Brisbane’s city council is looking at two proposals until May but the “metro” could cost about 1bn dollars in any case.
1,000 EV charging stations in Delhi: Tata Power announced it wants to install a 1,000 EV charge stop in the Indian capital within the next 4 – 5 years. Discussions with the authorities are underway for space – a crucial factor when two-, three,- and four-wheelers will eventually need to charge for hours.
Tender for green buses: The Singapore Land Transport Authority looks to buy 50 hybrid and 60 electric buses this year to expand its trial. The LTA plans to have three bus routes served by electric buses only.
50 EV charge spots with 200 charging opportunities are to emerge throughout New York State. Installation is handled by EV Connect and funded through an award by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.
Cheaper hydrogen: At several H2 fueling stations by Air Products in California, FCV drivers can now buy hydrogen for less than 10 dollars per kilogram. Higher demand and better fueling technology enabled the price cut.
