"The Canadian Urban Transit Research and Innovation Consortium (CUTRIC), a transportation technology development organization, is partnering with seven institutions to research battery electric and fuel cell electric buses.
OCAD University, Ontario Tech University, Queen’s University, the University of Windsor, Centennial College, York University and Canadian Nuclear Labs are all members of the National Academic Committee on Zero-Emissions Buses (NAC-ZEB).
CUTRIC says it and its members are contributing a total of $4.2 million in funding over three years with an additional $551,000 through the federally supported Mitacs Accelerate and Elevate programs to fund the initiative.
CUTRIC supports research into electric and hydrogen bus simulation and modeling tools and powertrain optimization to improve bus motors, batteries and hydrogen fuel cell stacks. The organization also supports cybersecurity research."
