Facilitate policymaking and the development of electric bus schemes

This joint publication of EBRD, UITP and GIZ is intended to facilitate policymaking and the development of electric bus schemes, and to assist project finance. It summarises emerging good practice across a range of important topics and geographies.

E-buses are now being deployed rapidly across a wide range of cities, with mass production leading to reductions in unit costs and lower technological risk. Schemes can now be developed that make a material contribution towards typical urban transport goals within realistic funding budgets. This report aims to show that e-buses have moved beyond the experimental and that sponsors have a range of technologies and financing options at their disposal.
