Why Should You Electrify Your Bus Fleet?
Get Ready to Electrify Your Buses
In order to plan and operate an electric bus fleet efficiently and cost-effectively, many factors must be taken into account. Not sure what these might be? – Don’t worry! We tell you what you need to think about here.
Our Services for Efficient Operations of Electric Bus Fleets
We have the right solution to all your questions concerning the electrification of your bus fleet. We support you with our expertise and experience – from the design to the running of your fleet.
1. Designing the e-Bus Fleet
To optimise the running of your electric bus fleet, your charging infrastructure should have a smart, customised design to meet your needs. We will create a innovative energy and infrastructure concept for you in five steps.
Example of a Bus Fleet Analysis
A bus operator wants to replace 24 of his buses with electric buses and to build the necessary charging infrastructure. The e-buses follow specified routes and are charged with up to 150 kW of power. The electrification analysis was performed in five steps.
Our charging management tool creates an optimised charging plan based on the available data. This process enabled us to reduce the required connection capacity from 2,300 kW to 500 kW. The grid expansion costs could be reduced by € 320,000, and the bus operator can save around € 140,000 per year in annual demand rate costs.
This is practically achieved through our load balancing. Electric buses are charged depending on their schedules, ensuring that buses are fully charged in time for their next departure. The charging processes of the various vehicles are spread over the entire day and not carried out at peak times.
2. Implementation of an Energy and Infrastructure Concept
You can draw on our many years of experience with charging infrastructure projects of all sizes when implementing your concept. We’ll be happy to support you with the following based on your needs:
3. Operating the e-Bus Fleet
We ensure that your electric buses are cost-optimised and charged depending on the timetables, and therefore guarantee that your e-bus fleet runs to schedule every time. We focus on the following:
