The Zero Emission Urban Bus System (ZeEUS) project was launched in Brussels last week.
UITP is coordinating 40 partners in this innovative 42-month project that aims to extend the fully electric solution to more European urban bus networks. Electricity as an alternative fuel source for road transport can help reduce air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and noise pollution.
Different innovative technological solutions for electric buses will be demonstrated in eight cities across Europe: Barcelona, Bonn, Glasgow, London, Münster, Plzen, Stockholm and one city in Italy. After analysing the results of the demonstrations, ZeEUS will develop guidelines and tools to help stakeholders introduce electrified bus systems in other European cities.
As the coming years will see many pilots, demonstrations and purchases of electric vehicles, an Observatory will be set up to discuss the progress of bus system electrification in Europe and contribute to the definition of strategies for the deployment of electric bus fleets.
