Support_to_20_GEF Eligible Parties for Alignment of National Action Programs and Reporting Process under UNCCD (Add-on Umbrella 2)

Project Summary

This project proposes a five-year demonstration program of operating and testing eight fuel-cell buses (FCBs) for public transport in Delhi. The major objective is to introduce this zero emission and highly efficient bus technology in India for reducing local air pollution and global GHG emissions. It will assist the Indian transport sector to gain capability of manufacturing, operating, and servicing FCBs under local conditions. It will also help create an initial volume demand and provide useful feedback of operating experience for the FCB developers/manufacturers to further improve the bus design and reduce the bus cost.
