As the rollout of the first large-scale battery-electric bus fleets begin in Europe, the question of how to manage operations and charging procedures becomes paramount.
The webinar is organized by Sustainable Bus in the framework of the Sustainable Bus Tour 2021 (https://bit.ly/3wbXfzV)
To date, many cities in Europe have launched small e-bus fleets in order to gain experience with zero emission bus operations. 2021 and 2022 will see the uptake of large scale deployment in many European cities, based on their transition plans. Just a few examples. Berlin aims to switch the full bus fleet to electricity by 2030. In the Netherlands, from 2025 on, newly bought buses for public transport can only be emission-free.
Not to forget, according to the EU’s Clean Vehicles Directive, a minimum of 22.5% of all new buses ordered in 2021 across Europe will have to be zero-emission to comply with the legislation.
In such a scenario, the issue the sector is facing is how to manage large e-bus fleets and which charging strategies to adopt in order to allow efficient operations, ramping up progressively the e-bus deployment.
