Testing electrification solutions at the heart of the urban bus system network through live demonstrations and facilitating the market uptake of electric buses in Europe. ZeEUS, the Zero Emission Urban Bus System, aims to be the flagship EU project to extend the fully-electric solution to the core part of the urban bus network. It follows on recommendations from fellow UITP European bus system projects [EBSF and 3iBS] to apply the electric solution to urban bus systems.
The key objectives of the ZeEUS project are to: Extend fully-electric solution to the core part of the urban bus network composed of high capacity buses. Evaluate the economic, environmental and societal feasibility of electric urban bus systems through live operational scenarios across Europe. Facilitate the market uptake of electric buses in Europe with dedicated support tools and actions. Support decision-makers with guidelines and tools on "if", "how" and "when" to introduce electric buses.
