Wrightbus Hydrogen Bus Project
The Hydrogen Bus is the perfect example of Clean Transport. Burning hydrogen fuel produces water not the carbon dioxides of petrol or diesel. Jo Bamford, heir to JCB, has taken over Wrightbus, based in Ballymena Northern Island. The company currently produces a variety of buses from diesel to batteries. Whilst batteries produce no emission they all come from China. Jo’s passion is to build hydrogen buses which can capitalise on the UK’s wind energy resources & develop into major UK exporter.
