VDV-ELECTRIC BUS CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITION
Since the beginning in focus: general conditions, field reports, technical development – especially in the field of sector coupling
and hydrogen, energy supply & charge management, and depot & battery handling.
VDV-Electric Bus Conference – Mobility of the future
MARCH 6, 2024 | 08:00 – MARCH 7, 2024 | 17:00
The bus market is facing a radical transformation. The EU and the German government are pushing the change with the goal to make tomorrow’s mobility fossil-free. That is why various instruments, regulations and laws are currently being modified simultaneously. As technical development is advancing rapidly, transport companies are forced to make substantial long-term investments under uncertainty. Still open is the question of national implementation of the Clean Vehicles Directive. One thing is clear: The decade of the e-bus – whether battery-electric or with fuel cells – has begun.
Consequently, many fundamental decisions have to be made by the transport companies. After all, the procurement of new buses is not enough: New systemic approaches are needed for the conversion to electric energy in form of a battery or hydrogen. Refueling and charging concepts, depot design, stabling and IT systems for dispatching, taking into account the range or refueling and charging capacities, must be designed. New space must be found, new security areas must be designated, and personnel must be retrained. It is time for an in-depth exchange of experiences on operational and technical implementation, the latest developments, successfully introduced processes – perhaps also mistakes – as well as employee training and other topics.
