Application to International High School

  1. 2. <ul><li>The IHS sports teams take a total of about 160 trips a year for games alone.. </li></ul><ul><li>We take trips ranging from 1.1 miles to 118 miles. </li></ul>
  2. 3. <ul><li>The total distance traveled totals 5592 </li></ul><ul><li>miles! This is the equivalent of taking roundtrip from our school to the White </li></ul><ul><li>House, in Washington DC or Disney World </li></ul><ul><li>in Orlando, Florida. </li></ul>
  3. 4. <ul><li>Our vans and buses average only 11 mpg </li></ul><ul><li>This means that the transportation of our sports teams for games is 4.46 metric tons of CO 2 annually, according to </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>61006680000000000000000000 molecules of CO₂ </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>Hydrogen Fuel Cell Buses are the latest alternative to fossil fuel creating vehicles </li></ul><ul><li>Demonstration and validation programs have been put in place in Massachusetts, New York, California, Washington D.C., Georgia, Delaware, as well as Europe, Asia, Canada, and Australia. </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>In 2006 the California Fuel Cell Partnership recieved a $12 million federal grant to fund reserch and commercializing hydrogen fuel cell vehicles </li></ul><ul><li>Muni and AC Transit currently use hydrogen fuel cell buses on three of their routes and plan to increase the buses on the road in the future </li></ul><ul><li>There are 26 hydrogen fuelling stations in CA and 9 in planning </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>Currently, Hydrogen fuel cell buses are not available for retail. There do exist and are in use in public transit around the world. </li></ul><ul><li>The goal of organizations like the California Fuel Cell Partnership is to release buses for purchase by the year 2012 </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>1 kg of hydrogen is equvalent to the energy content of a gallon of gasoline </li></ul><ul><li>FCVs carry 4-6 kg of hydrogen, averaging 280-300 miles per tank of fuel. FCVs in production and development for commercial use will average 300-500 miles per tank. </li></ul>
  9. 10. <ul><li>Currently a hydrogen fuel cell bus costs about twice as much as a conventional diesel bus. </li></ul><ul><li>However the second generation of fuel cell buses (in development and production) will cost half the price of the first generation. </li></ul><ul><li>Today a kg of hydrogen costs between $10 and $20. To fill the fuel tank can cost up to $1200. </li></ul>
  10. 11. <ul><li>The CaFCP predicts that hydrogen fuel cell passenger vehicles as well as buses will be competitive with today’s vehicles. </li></ul><ul><li>Infact, buses will be available sooner than passenger vehicles because they are already replacing diesel buses in airports, transit agencies, and university campuses. </li></ul>
