The ZeEUS project was launched on Thursday 23 January 2013 in Brussels, Belgium. ZeEUS aims at extending the fully-electric solution to a wider part of the urban bus network. Developing electric vehicles of large capacity and creating an infrastructure able to provide the required charging energy will facilitate the market up-take of electric buses in Europe. ZeEUS covers innovative electric bus solutions with different electric powertrain systems to be demonstrated in eight cities: Barcelona, Bonn, Glasgow, London, Münster, Plzen, Stockholm and one Italian city (tbc). ZeEUS’ analyses will help develop guidelines and tools to support stakeholders in efficiently introducing electrified bus systems in European cities.
FREVUE will be closely working with ZeEUS to support and diessminate common goals and achievements. ZeEUS will from the third pillar of the Green eMotion and FREVUE Joint Stakeholder Forum this year, to be held in June (more information soon), following on from 2013’s successful event.
