Charging solutions for electric bus fleets

Operate your electric buses reliably and at the lowest cost.

Would you like your electric buses to be ready to run on time, while saving battery power and costs?

We have the solution for you

Public Transit is changing in fundamental ways. As cities around the globe ban or increase regulations on diesel transportation, demand for reduced emissions vehicles has grown. By replacing conventional internal combustion fleets with electric transit, fleet operators can reduce local emissions. The transition to electric buses calls for more than just replacement of diesel buses. Smart charging solutions can help reduce investment and operation costs for electric buses, making electric mobility a viable long-term economic alternative for public transportation.

Advantages of electric buses at a glance

Icon - sustainability

Fewer Emissions

Electric buses are free of emissions (locally) and produce less noise when driving.

Icon - efficiency

High degree of efficiency

The efficiency of an electric drive and the possibility of recuperation provide for a high degree of efficiency.

Icon - saving costs

Reduced total costs

Today's electric buses already demonstrate lower operating and maintenance costs (TCO) than diesel buses.

Icon - happiness

Great ride comfort

Electric buses accelerate smoothly and almost silently. This significantly increases comfort during the ride.

Our services to efficiently run electric bus fleets

Our goal is to provide you with a sustainable, cost-optimized charging solution for your buses. That is why we focus on a comprehensive approach for your charging infrastructure, from concept to operation.

1. Designing the e-bus fleet

To optimize the running of your electric bus fleet, your charging infrastructure should have a smart, customized design to meet your needs. We will create a innovative energy and infrastructure concept for you in five steps.

  • Evaluation of route data
  • Evaluation of the grid connection and energy landscape
  • Optimization of charging processes with the help of our analysis software
  • Feasibility study of various scenarios
  • Creation of a customer-specific energy and infrastructure concept

2. Implementation

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:

  • Design and planning of site-specific charging solutions
  • Determining tendering requirements
  • Procuring the relevant components, e.g. charging stations
  • Installation by our qualified specialist partners

3. Operating the e-bus fleet

We ensure that your electric buses are cost-optimized and charged depending on the timetables, and therefore guarantee that your e-bus fleet runs to schedule every time. We focus on the following:

  • Meeting the charging requirements
  • Load balancing for cost-optimized operation
  • Reduction of ongoing costs for grid usage and electricity consumption
  • Monitoring and control of charging processes in the customer portal
  • Interfaces to control centers and depot management systems

A bus company which operates a bus fleet for local transit in its region, among other things, wants to serve as a pioneer in the public transport sector by switching its fleet from diesel buses to electric buses. In this specific case, it is particularly important that routes around the national park are covered by zero emissions buses. We delivered a concept that will charge the fleet reliably and cost-efficiently. Timetables with the related distances form the basis for developing our solution. Using our analysis software and smart load balancing, we develop a charging infrastructure solution via which we can reduce grid expansion. By reducing the load from 2.3 MW to 0.5 MW, the company saves investment costs of € 320,000 as well as € 140,000 annually on running costs. We also look at whether integration of a solar system with stationary storage is an option, and whether it is cost-effective for operation of the fleet.
