The South African-German Energy Partnership
In the framework of the South African-German Energy Partnership, GIZ organized a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Bus Study Tour in 2017. The main purpose of the study tour was to share lessons learnt with selected South African municipalities, bus operators and policy developers about the journey in deploying fuel cell busses. The programme for the study tour included meetings with key German metros who successfully deployed Fuel Cell Buses. Additionally, site visits to bus depots, fueling stations and various workshops with managers, engineers and operators, as well as German ministry representatives were included in the itinerary to further deepen peer to peer learning and cross-border exchange.
