BNEF estimates that 58% of global municipal bus fleet will become electric by 2030, and this will be the highest on-road EV adoption across any vehicle segments. This push for clean mass public transportation is coming because of fast growing urbanization and resulting congestion and pollution in cities.


However, e-Bus deployment world over is seeing common challenges, including:
  • Significant procurement, commissioning and start of operations delays
  • Substantially lower range performance in city real conditions than quoted specifications
  • Poor e-Bus fleet utilization and high deviation in planned ROI
  • Missing operations SLAs and resulting high contract risks in PPP models
  • Batteries degradation and resulting additional capex infusion down the line to maintain SLAs
Above is resulting from missing performance data points around e-Bus new technology, but also due to the lack of systematic planning. The broad generalization and thumb rule approach without understanding enough the bus- battery-charger characteristics and their interaction with individual route and driving conditions is leading to non-optimal e-Bus performance. With it’s growing high adoption across the globe, it will become more important for Public Transport Authorities (PTAs) and Bus operators to learn how to systematically plan for e-Buses phase-wise adoption and integration with the conventional fleet.


This Webinar will bring experts from multiple domains – e-Bus Manufacturer, PTA, and Transport to discuss following:


  1. What important characteristics of bus-battery-charger system that influence e-Bus performance over time?
  2. What all parameters involved for systematic e-Bus fleet planning across Depots and Routes?
  3. What important considerations and steps involved for route selection for e-Buses?
  4. What operational planning and execution considerations to improve eBus fleet and charging infrastructure overall performance and utilization, and optimize both capex and opex?
  5. How to go about building right planning skills in the industry to improve e-Buses adoption and integration?
