Leading bus manufacturer Wrightbus was showcasing the capabilities of hydrogen and its part in the UK’s net zero ambitions at a conference last month.
Wrightbus was exhibiting its world-first hydrogen bus at the East Suffolk Hydrogen Conference.
The company launched its first zero-emission bus – the Streetdeck Hydroliner – in 2020 in Aberdeen, with the fleet entering passenger service in January 2021. The Hydroliner bus emits only water from its tailpipe, with no harmful emissions.
Wrightbus is also behind the world’s most efficient double deck electric bus – the Streetdeck Electroliner, and also produces single deck battery electric buses.
The company’s buses are currently in operation around the UK and Ireland. Local authorities have introduced them to their town and city streets to improve local air quality.
Tom Greenshields, head of business development who will be representing Wrightbus at the conference, said: “We are immensely proud to be showcasing our hydrogen bus at the East Suffolk Hydrogen Conference and are looking forward to showing people what it is capable of.
“Our buses are world-leading and are helping to play an important part in the UK’s ambitions for decarbonisation.
“Now more than ever before is the time to showcase the many benefits of hydrogen.”
The conference focused on harnessing hydrogen power to help further establish East Suffolk as a major hub for energy production.
It also looked to identify and unlock any barriers limiting the development of the local hydrogen economy.
