About: 

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 is offering a new training programme on Electric Buses which is taking place on 26-28 September in Geneva in cooperation with the Transports Publics Genèvois (TPG). 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, 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 the TOSA electric bus solution will be organised.

"The UITP-training opened my eyes about possibilities for using electric busses in an urban situation." Erik Mes, Provincie Gelderland, Netherlands (April 2016 edition) 
 
"All the trainers had huge experience about electric busses." Ahmet Dere, IETT, Istanbul, Turkey (April 2016 edition)

The objective of the course is to:

  • 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

  • Get acquainted with new developed “KPIs” to assess the performance of an electric bus solution with a practical application during our dedicated workshops

  • Learn about the implementation and running of the new electric bus demonstration TOSA in Geneva: http://www.tosa2013.com/en

Our trainers

Our skillful trainers are composed of international experts and professionals with extensive experience and knowledge in the strategic, operational and technological areas of electric buses.

Methodology

  • Get inspired by our trainers, understand the main aspects of electric buses and learn from successful best practice

  • Participate to interactive plenary sessions with introduction by course leaders, presentation by the trainer and open discussion with participants

  • Challenge your practical knowledge on the technology, the implementation and the running of electric buses

  • Address the topic from an international perspective, enriched by different cultural approaches and points of views

  • Participate to workshops allowing you to apply on a concrete case the main principles and tools learned

  • Benefit from a unique exchange of knowledge and experience between professionals

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 operators 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

Programme: 

ENLARGE SYNOPTIC

Draft programme

The programme starts at 9.00 in the morning on Monday 26th September and ends latest at 16.00 in the afternoon on Wednesday 28th September. 

> 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: 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 3: Workshop

KPIS for performant electric buses

> Session 4: 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 5: Batteries, infrastructure & auxiliaries

This session will look into new auxiliaries and technologies used to run electric busses, 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 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 7: Workshop

The electric bus and the institutional process: from the setting of a city strategy to implementation

> Session 8: Workshop results

> Session 9: Opening new mobility services opportunities with e-buses
