Third meeting of the pilot users in June 2021
On June 9, 2021, the third user forum was held as part of the Strategie E project. On this occasion, the project team welcomed 33 participants from Germany and Austria. Following the welcome round, ebusplan managing director Philipp Sinhuber presented the electric bus planner prototype for software-supported, strategic planning of electric buses. After the presentation, all attendees had the opportunity to ask questions and make comments.
In the second half of the event, Torsten Schmidt from the transport authority in Leipzig (LVB) presented the electrification project of the Saxon public transport company. In his exciting presentation, guests learned about the testing and procurement of hybrid and electric buses in Leipzig. Mr. Schmidt explained in which way the electric bus planner supported the challenging planning of the charging infrastructure for LVB.
Finally, the participants had an open discussion about possible further developments and fields of application of the electric bus planner.
