Bus manufacturer Build Your Dreams (BYD) and designer of powertrain components US Hybrid will develop a hydrogen fuel cell battery-electric bus to operate at Hawaii’s Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport. The project is part of state’s Clean Energy Initiative to decrease dependency on imported oil and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Additionally, the scheme is intended to help Hawaii reach its ambition of using 100% renewable energy by 2045.
Transportation company Robert’s Hawaii will serve as the bus operator and will take passengers between the airport’s terminal and car rental facility.
The bus is manufactured in Lancaster, California and the fuel cell are made in South Windsor, Connecticut.
