The winds of the green revolution of energy and ecological transition are blowing also in Eastern Europe, where Hungary is ready to launch its first hydrogen-powered bus service, which will connect the capital Budapest and the nearby town of Vecses. A novelty announced by the Secretary of State for Climate, Energy, Policy and Development of the Circular Economy
As reported by The Budapest Times newspaper, the project was developed by the HUMDA-Hungarian Motorsport and Green Mobility Development Agency using a Solaris Urbino 12 electric bus with hydrogen fuel cells, which will be operated by national bus carrier Volanbusz.
As for the weight of the transport sector on the total CO2 emissions, the Hungarian transport world weighs about 20% of total emissions. For this reason the Secretary of State stressed the government’s intention to implement significant changes to achieve climate neutrality by 2050.
