Abstract:

This report highlights the recent and future developments of cleaner public bus transport in Europe and India. Even though HEBs and PEBs are still at a nascent stage in terms of public appearance, several OEMs have found commercially applicable solutions that would benefit today’s problems caused by rapid urbanization and demographic growth especially in emerging economies like India. OEMs and suppliers have to tackle a number of challenges. Alternative propulsion systems for buses are regarded as an economically viable alternative to diesel buses. From a technological point of view, OEMs of the first sector have to agree on a suitable solution in regards to charging infrastructure and EES. Additionally, public as well as private research endeavors in EES have to work on exhausting the potential of available li-ion technology in order to reduce the overall weight and to increase the energy density as well as their durability by using new material combinations. At the same time they have to focus on new EES-concepts, which will succeed li-ion batteries in the future.
