Pau, a city in transition!
In service since December 2019, the Fébus is the hydrogen bus of the City of Pau. Its particularity? It does not emit greenhouse gases, on the contrary, it uses oxygen and hydrogen and produces water vapor. More precisely: 268 kg of hydrogen produced per day is the equivalent of the production of one year of a forest as large as 88 soccer stadiums.
This project, financed to the tune of €58 million by the Pau Béarn Pyrénées Mobilités joint venture, has received almost €16 million in subsidies from the State, the Pau Béarn Pyrénées urban community, the city of Pau and the European Union.
But it’s not just about money!
As sustainable and environmentally friendly mean of transport, the Febus is in line with the climate objectives of the European Union and its Member States.
You may have heard that in 2019 the European Commission launched the Green Deal for Europe, a roadmap and set of legislative initiatives aimed at a historic goal: carbon neutrality for the European Union by 2050.
