The government is taking various measures to reduce dependence on the country’s crude oil imports. For this, efforts are being made to adopt the alternative option of oil. Now, NTPC is planning to start the first premium hydrogen fuel bus service between Delhi and Jaipur. After this, electric buses can also be run on this route.
The government is constantly making efforts to reduce dependence on crude oil imports and adopt green mobility. Efforts are being made to convert public transport and shared mobility service to alternative pool and testing hydrogen fuel buses in metro cities like Mumbai. However, in West India, the prototype is being tested for an intra-city commute.
Now, India’s largest energy company NTPC Limited is planning to start a premium hydrogen fuel bus service from Delhi to Jaipur and this will be the first FCEV bus service to be used for intercity traffic. Currently, no timeline has been set to start this service.
Also plans to run electric bus after hydrogen fuel bus
On the launch of the Go Electric Campaign in Delhi, Energy Minister RK Singh said on Friday, “We are planning to start premium hydrogen fuel bus service from Delhi to Jaipur and gradually we will also try to run electric buses on this route.”
The Energy Minister said that the new bus service will be a pilot project to test the feasibility of fuel cell buses in intercity traffic and to analyze the economical capacity compared to traditional ICE bus service. However, its timeline has not been given yet.
The electric tractor will be launched on March
This change is not just focused on public transport. In the same program, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari announced that in the month of March, he will launch new electric tractors in the country. In Maharashtra, the government is trying to buy 40,000 electric buses for intercity traffic.
