Introduction

With most metropolitan areas targeting zero-emission environments, an increasing number of cities and transport companies are considering a fully-electric solution for their urban bus network. In this context, the UITP Centre for Training designed this training programme on Electric Buses in cooperation with the Transport Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB). The course will offer a comprehensive overview of the electric solution for urban bus networks, from the setting of a city strategy, the choice of technology and the battery, the procurement of buses, all the way to the implementation and operation of the system. In addition to our interactive plenary sessions, workshops will allow participants to apply their learnings in small groups and a site visit and demonstration of electric buses in Barcelona will be organised.

Visiting TMB Barcelona will be of particular interest to participants, who will be able to experience busses which are in service and use different types of technologies, from plug-in systems to opportunity charging on the road and at terminals. TMB already operates BYD K9 busses on a number of different lines; additionally, within the EU funded ZeEUS project coordinated by the UITP, TMB is evaluating two new purely electric buses : the 12m Irizar i2e (overnight charging) and the 18m Solaris Urbino (overnight slow-charging, with opportunity charging at line terminals). More information about ZeEUS: http://zeeus.eu/

An excellent course for those that are considering electrification of bus public transport to improve quality of life of
the passengers as well as the residents that live along the routes."

(Danny Ilioiu, Director R&D MTA Regional Bus Operations, New York City - Geneva 2016 Edition)

Objectives

  • Introduce the electric solution, the different types of technologies and compare their benefits and drawbacks
  • Understand how to get value from electric buses looking at their economic, environmental and societal feasibility
  • Learn from experience on how to implement and run electric bus lines successfully
  • Understand the implications for operations and infrastructure
  • Learn about the implementation and running of electric buses in Barcelona
  • Discuss the performance of an electric bus solution with a practical application during our dedicated workshop

Target audience

  • Project managers, engineers and other professionals eager to learn more about the technology, the implementation and the running of electric buses
  • Staff from public transport or authorities planning to extend a fully-electric solution to the core part of the urban bus network
  • Staff from the bus industry worldwide involved in the market uptake of electric buses
  • Professionals interested in obtaining a wider and international perspective on electric buses and eager to learn more from international best practice
  • The course welcomes junior and senior participants worldwide

A good level of English is a compulsory requirement to attend the training

Participants recommend this programme

"A very efficient, comprehensive and useful course! Actually one of the best, I ever had!"
(Peter Blumrich, Director Sales & Business Development in TOSHIBA Europe GmbH - Geneva 2016 Edition)

"The UITP programme on electric buses provides a superb opportunity for both experts and new implementers to
meet, learn and apply state of the art technology."

(Anonymous - Geneva 2016 Edition)

> Session 1: Introduction: An electric solution for urban bus networks
What is an electric bus and how can electric buses contribute to making public transport network competitive and our cities sustainable? What are the drivers and barriers when it comes to the choice of technology? How can it affect the institutional organisation and governance in a city?

> Session 2: The impact on operations
From line management and maintenance to training of personnel, driving and safety, the operations of a fully electric bus line differs substantially from that of a traditional bus line. The importance of studying the initial operational needs are key to successfully introducing electric buses, as much as the design and dimensioning of the line according to the energy supply and usage. International best practice will present return on experience from the operation of electric fleets across Europe and the world.  

> Session 3: Workshop
Discuss the performance of an electric bus solution with a practical application

> Session 4: Getting value out of electric buses
What are the financial constraints and benefits of implementing an electric bus line? How to analyse the electrical life cycle costs? What risks exist and what can be the impact on costs? How to run a healthy budget by balancing and foreseeing accurately new types of savings and costs?

> Session 5: Batteries, infrastructure & auxiliaries
This session will look into new auxiliaries and technologies used to run electric buses, whether it be the installation and running of charging infrastructure, the impact on information technology systems, driver assistance, standardization of the connection or the technical evolution of the battery.

> Session 6: Getting the procurement and commissioning process right
To successfully implement and run fully electric line, it is essential to make the tendering process evolve from a simple vehicle purchase to the tendering of a comprehensive electric system, taking into account life cycle costs, charging infrastructure, batteries, economic models, leasing and renting, etc

> Session 7: Workshop
Discuss the performance of an electric bus solution with a practical application

> Session 8: Opening new opportunities for mobility services with e-buses
