Environmental impacts and emissions of alternative drive systems in local public transport

Review of 6th ebusplan online seminar

Online Seminar on Efficiency Chains, Life Cycle Assessments and Resource Issues of Electric Buses

Climate targets and their regular tightening do not stop at public transport. In particular, the amendment of the so-called Clean Vehicles Directive in 2019 clearly testifies to the Europe-wide will to reduce pollutant emissions from road transport. In addition to reducing CO2 emissions, local air pollution caused by nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter is also to be minimized in order to improve air quality, particularly in inner cities. The consequence of these certainly desirable goals is a changing over of conventional diesel bus fleets to climate and environmentally friendly alternatives.

Participants at the event learned how the use of electric buses affects the eco-balance of transport companies and what challenges it poses in terms of resources.

A complete series of online events on electric buses

We at ebusplan have taken the increased use of online-based communication tools since last year as an opportunity to also make the topics of the electric bus world online accessible, entertainingly and for free. Within the scope of our event series “Elektrobus-Wissen kompakt” our managing directors Mr. Sinhuber and Mr. Rogge therefore regularly inform the interested audience about various industry-specific topics. In this way, the viewers have already been able to enjoy expert presentations on the European Clean Vehicles Directive, electric bus funding, battery and fuel cell technology, and electric bus procurement.

Due to the very positive experience, we want to continue to provide information on electric bus topics also in the future. The list of upcoming subjects includes, for example, the operational efficiency of electric buses, Transition planning and IT systems for the planning and deployment of electric buses.
