Workshop III: Electric Busses: Gaining Advantages with Intelligent Charging Solutions

Future Forum

April 25, 2017

4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Future Forum Hall 21

Theme: Sustainable Mobility

The electrification of a bus fleet triggers a change in the operation concept. As a first step, a certain type of bus is chosen based on the driving route requirements. Next, the respective charging infrastructure needs to be specified, while the planning process follows energy economic circumstances. In addition, a scalable solution should be considered, which allows for a stepwise fleet transformation. The workshop outlines an electric bus operation in a local public transport environment, using several practical examples.
